On Sunday, a 66-year-old bow hunter in Tillamook County, Oregon, died after the elk he had shot charged him. As reported by Oregon Live, Mark David was archery hunting on private property on Saturday night when he hit a bull elk.

David was unable to locate the wounded animal on Saturday night and resumed the search on Sunday morning. David, along with the property owner, located the injured elk and the hunter attempted to kill him. But, the injured elk charged the hunter, goring him in the neck and inflicting fatal injuries.

Both the hunter, and the hunted died on Sunday morning. Meat from the deceased elk was harvested and donated to the Tillamook County jail.

    Bow and arrow is a cruel way to hunt. Exactly what happened here happens. The animal gets wounded but not killed and runs. Imagine the suffering for a day as this majestic animal is slowly dying. Horrible!

    I’m only sorry the elk died. I don’t give a damn about the miserable hunter and the bastard got what he deserved, especially for being a despicable bow hunter.. Should have donated HIS carcass to the poor and left the elk alone.

    Every time a hunter dies, an angel gets her wings!

    Agree with all three of the comments above! These sick bastard hunters should all rot in hell. From Cecil, the beautiful loin in Africa, all the bear cubs being orphaned in NJ, the deer being hunted everywhere, the geese, the fox, the coyotes, all of Gods creatures gunned down by heartless humans. Karma is a bitch & I hope they get theirs, just like this guy did.
