Contrary to the opinion of some, the elephant is not endangered and in fact several countries of Southern Africa have been forced to institute culling operations to keep their numbers in balance.

    You people should be ashamed. I'm no anti-gun/anti-hunting guy but elephants really? I've always said though if people season was opened somewhere I know some bone heads would show up. Never heard of elephant meat is it good? You eat horse meat too? Dog meat? I never have understood why the people that love the outdoors so much, and nature, are the people that want to get out there and destroy it. Oh that human nature!
