The fact that as a hunter, he couldn’t give the animal a quick and clean death is infuriating. Instead it was slow and painful death thanks to his awful aim. How about instead of spending thousands of dollars on exotic animal hunting, maybe you should use that money to learn how to shoot better. Honestly you make Stevie Wonder look like Chris Kyle.

According to depositions made public at a National Rifle Association (NRA) bankruptcy hearing last week, NRA President Wayne LaPierre hid on a 108-foot yacht after school children died in mass shootings. The boat’s owner is tied to a fundraising firm paid $11.5 million by the NRA in 2019. LaPierre said he thought to himself: “Thank God I’m safe, nobody can get me here.” What hypocrisy for a man who raised hundreds of millions by telling conservatives to buy lots of guns to be safe. Despite an endless gun supply, he fled to sea for safety.

Disgusting and utterly abhorrent. The "hunters" are the one's that need shooting. First the knees,feet,groin and elbows, then leave the vile scumbags to die by whatever means. Bleeding out, or becoming lunch. It's what they deserve. I HATE THEM WITH A PASSION.

Native Amazon tribes are upset when they have to kill an animal for food and clothing. These morons kill for fun.

These are the people obsessed with hyper-masculinity, by the way; the same people that think trophy hunting is some rite of passage every boy needs to go through to be a real man. This video is horrific, but it is valuable in showing just how much of a facade that obsession is.

Dead elephants =money for more elephants. Conservation can be tricky. Glad im not a liberal doof. Elephant hunting isnt for me but if its not for you at least you can take heart in the fact that the money goes into making sure there will never be no elephants.

Look at the ratings, 1/4 of who watched this video should have the same fate as the poor elephants!

Maybe they meant "thumbs up" because that this video is shown ... so that we become aware how stupid organizations like the NRA are. I mean the New Yorker did a good job in uploading this video.

The average gestation period for a female elephant is a whopping 22 months. That's a long time! Female elephants must have a thing for the older man, as males do not come into their prime until they are between 30-35 years of age.

I'm not a hunter. I was on "Share your story @ howtohunt.com". You should take a look at it. It's on US-first. You probably won't understand it, you didn't understand my email.

Unless and until the ratio of animals killed by hunters to hunters killed by animals is 1:1, this is not a sport; this is murder. I'll say the same thing about animals raised for meat.

They better seek mental treatment. What is the point of killing an innocent animal while it’s looking at you? Defenseless animals should have rights more than human rights, people can talk and defend themselves, animals can’t! Extremely disturbing video! And thumb down

"I can hit there..." right on the spot indeed. That man is the pride of the NRA and gun-fanatics anywhere in the USA. As one who has owned automatic weapons even, muzzle-loader, survival rifle, hunted with bolt and lever action, I'm embarrassed this man thinks he is qualified to lead anything but a trip to the bathroom. Yet there again, he probably misses all the time too.

This isn't hunting. Hunting involves fair chase where a person pursues an animal at the extent of their abilities. Hike ten miles into the back country and stalk an animal where he's used to being hunted. Absolutely ridiculous.

speechless...i wish they start chasing & shooting each other so elephants get a chance to live on this cruel heartless planet! My heart is out to the innocent elephant that died for nothing! This makes me wonder..."God do you really exist?" Mercy!

They don't even know the anatomy of the animal they are hunting. "What chest?" Furthering a prolonged death for the animal. I don't understand the jubilation in these freaks when they kill them. "lots of wrinkles" sounds like an idiot. Evil people

If there's anything respectable about hunting, it's the ability to make your own decisions. I don't get the impulse to be led around like a toddler by a patronizing tour guide telling you where and how to shoot. Also, a photo of an elephant looking you right in the face is a better souvenir than a piece of a tail that's been ripped off.

OMG how dobyou find this as a sport? Shooting a big and slow target??? You're really the man. Well done ass::;l. Congratulated for shooting a dying already on the ground target/not moving. That's not a sport. I don't see where's the satisfaction on shooting a closed big barely moving target except just being a COLD BLOODED KILLER.

They are all pieces of s--t for participating in the killing of these majestic, endangered animals. How you can be so proud of killing an older elephant as she was is disgusting, like she was putting him out of his misery. He very well could have had many more years to live. He was likely an important leader and now he is gone. The laughing, giggling, and smiling were saddening to witness. Those animals were of no threat to them. When this species is non-existent we have them to blame. Sad what this world is coming to.

Wayne LaPierre didn't do himself any favors by making this endangered elephant suffer. His lack of skills show and he showed himself and the wretched NRA in a bad light. Shame on him.

Its totally disgusting to learn there are people like her that get such a thrill out of putting a rifle on a tripod, with a scope, to shoot an innocent animal thats about 30 feet away, which is the size of a school bus. Words cannot describe what a loathsome human she is.
I adopted a cat.
