Daphne Legemah Why kill the animal instead of taking it to the zoo, no wonder some of the zoo in the country so empty

Tobi Adedayo This guyz should stop killing this wild lives, how long are we going to continue this cruelty… This animals are in danger of extinction for God sake
Izukka Nation I think the hunter was just being conscious of his money in first bank..since snake and monkey has done their part.. elephant is now a suspect..

Oroka Kingsley Those of you that are saying the hunter shouldn’t have killed the elephant,what if the elephant was a wild one trying to attack him?

  5. I think this is that first bank Elephant oo if this man didn’t quickly do this by now all those banking with first bank would have been hearing a different story now oo saying the Elephant swallowed their over am out bye hahaha

  6. that’s a baby elephant… that dane gun could never take down a big one… also look at the size compared to the hunter….. must have been lost trying to get back to mama. I come from idanre … elephants are not commonplace there……. must have really wandered far in the bush away from its own home area… and stumbled into some guys cocoa farm…. so sad… idanre guys don’t mess with their farms o … cocoa is big money to grow and maintain and anything that disturbs that is in trouble … idanre main business is cocoa .. they protect their farms so jealously because they spend so much on it … it is just unfortunate… elephants are very rare now in Nigeria… all killed off !!!…
