Why I've a good mind to join the club and beat you over the head with it.

This just in: some people are unfathomably ignorant assholes.

Orwell's "Shooting an Elephant" is a great essay.
Just thought I'd say that.

Since they hit it in the neck by the shoulderblade, im assuming it was an aimed shot intended to kill the thing, as thats consistent with deer hunting technique etc.

Good farking luck shooting an elephant without ammunition specifically designed for it though. I once read a first hand story of a guy who was a British colonial guard in India who had to try to put down a rampaging elephant. He kept shooting it in the head and at the heart with standard rifle rounds over and over at point blank and the damn thing just wouldnt die.

There are no legal ramifications to shooting an elephant in your SUV as long as you cite the "Sanity Clause" to the party of the first part.

Sick morans, who does that. What'd they use a .223? you need a 45-70, or big ass winmag. These days they probably cost the same the way people are hording .233.

If you want to kill an elephant you need something like this, the .700 nitro express.

I hope:

A) Whoever did this gets shiat cancer and dies a horrible, slow, painful death. I'm talking over a decade of complete agony.

B) Circus animals eat their captors.

Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...well I have others.

Usually hunters of elephants shoot them head on in the brain with a .450 nitro or higher caliber cartridge.   At least the natives get to eat the meat from what I've heard.
