A 46-year-old hunter from Argentina was killed when one the elephants that he was trying to kill trampled him to death. The hunter, has been identified as Jose Monzalvez – the deadly incident happened on Saturday afternoon at a private wildlife area outside of Kalkfeld, Namibia.

According to the New York Post, Monzalvez was with a group of hunters at the time – the elephant responsible for the man’s death was in a herd being targeted by the hunting group. The elephant charged at the man before he could fire his weapon.

In May, a professional South African big game hunter was killed when an injured elephant collapsed on him. Read the story here.
