Big Game Hunter Kills This Gorgeous Animal – See What Mother Nature Had Her Soldiers Do!

Story from 

Scott van Zyl, a big-game hunting enthusiast from South Africa, provided a service for interested clients to go on hunting excursions through his company, SS Pro Safaris. People would pay to hunt animals like lions, wildebeest, and rhinos.

He was certainly no stranger to the element of danger involved with hunting wild animals. One day, however, he went missing, and locals and authorities feared the worst.

While he was skilled at the safety precautions necessary to go on such adventures, it seems his hobby caught up with him. While on safari in Zimbabwe, accompanied by a tracking guide and a pack of dogs, he and the guide separated at the Limpopo River.

Scott wasn’t seen again. According to the guide, the dogs returned to the base camp without Scott, so the guide called local authorities.

They found Scott’s footprints leading to a riverbank and his backpack. There were also two Nile crocodiles nearby.

Police suspected Scott may have been attacked and killed by the crocodiles. Wildlife authorities killed the crocs and forensics experts and nature conservation services performed an autopsy, finding human remains inside.

One commenter on this story at Honest to Paws summed it up well, writing: “When you mess with God’s animals and display his beauty like he did, your days are numbered. What comes around goes around, too bad the crocs could not display him. Instead they had to pay with their lives when all they did was what came natural.”

Another noted: “I am glad that they got him, but I am very sorry that two crocodiles had to lose their lives for someone who has killed for SPORT. I can’t believe in this day and age, killing for sport.”

Still another person commented: “A fitting end for him – live by the sword, die by the sword. I’m sorry for the crocs as they were not trophy hunting just surviving.”

One person commented: “Why were the crocodiles killed just to see if they ate this douche?  If they did attack and eat him, they were just doing what comes naturally.  The hunter, on the other hand, was needlessly killing big game.  Nature will take care of thinning out big game.  These hunters are egomaniacs with a need to prove their manhood.”

Yet another person pointed out: “It’s not a ‘sport’ unless both teams know that a game is afoot and are equally ‘armed.’”

Another commenter also tried to make sense of this “sport,” writing: “Africa are now ‘farming lions,’ raise them from cubs…grown ups send them out to be killed by wealthy. Sad…these lions trust humans…then they are shot and this is called hunting…I don’t get it….what exactly kind of rush is that…like drugs…what…what would be the danger. An animal facing a man/women with a gun…20 or more yards away…with a guide there to protect you if you miss or wound.”

Here is this week’s Face of Animal Cruelty – Meet Aurora.

Aurora was brought in with 2nd and 3rd degree burns covering almost half her body

Update:

UPDATE 5-8-17 – Aurora is just starting to heal. She has gained a bit of weight (is up to 15.5 lbs now) and this morning she was sedated and had her wounds cleaned up before her bi-daily burn ointment application. With regards to the investigation, Aurora was brought to HSGKC by KCK Animal Services as a stray and the KCKPD detective has now concluded that the initial report was incorrect and that Aurora’s injuries were the result of an accidental cooking grease incident. Rescuer’s focus remains on Aurora’s recovery, making sure she heals, and eventually makes her way to a loving home.

Where her story began:

This is the worst burn case we have ever seen. Where do I begin? The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City sent out a plea to help a tiny pit bull who had been badly burned. A woman called animal control and stated there was a stray dog in her front yard that had been set on fire. The dog, now named Aurora, was brought in with 2nd and 3rd degree burns covering almost half of her body. We have partnered with HSGKC to raise the funds needed to save Aurora’s life. But we need your help.

Here is where the story gets complicated. After the police started an investigation into the case, the woman who called Animal Services came forward as Aurora’s actual owner. She had made up the story about the dog being a stray in order to get the dog help. She then stated that the dog accidentally knocked over cooking oil that fell on Aurora, burning half her body. She said the accident happened 5 days before she called. I can’t even imagine how painful that must have been for little Aurora!

The care she needs to survive is extensive. Burns like these take months of around-the-clock care. That is where we need your help. We have created these animal saving shirts, bracelets and totes to help us raise the funds to cover the costs of her extensive surgeries, skin grafts and emergency care.

We have partnered with The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City to raise the donations needed to save Aurora’s life. Together, we have created the animal-saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed. Purchase yours today. We made a promise to Aurora and her nonprofit that we will not stop until she is safe and pain free but we cannot do that without you!
