Recently a post was shared of a incident that had happened at the Kruger National Park. It was reported that an Elephant killed a poacher. This many may find to be a bad thing however most people in Mzansi are celebrating because the person who was killed by the elephant was infact a poacher. So people are saying the elephant was protecting itself from the poacher, some called it self defense. See people's reactions down below;
A poacher is someone who breaks the law to hunt or fish. If you see someone hunting deer in a state park that's got "No Hunting" signs posted on trees, that person is a poacher.
The law allows them to shoot only after they are shot at, but as one mercenary told me, "What happens in the bush stays in the bush." Conservationists counted 6,102 poached rhinos between 2008 and 2016, with the vast majority killed in South Africa.
The crucial distinction to be made between poaching and hunting is where each sits in the eyes of the law. Put simply, poaching is hunting without legal permission from whoever controls the land. ... Hunting is regulated by the government, and hunters must obtain permits authorising them to kill certain animals.
Share your thoughts in the comment section, do you think it is fair that people are celebrating such a thing?
