Be careful what you advertise. This is what a German-based travel company has learned, after a Polish hunter who dreamed of shooting elephants sent the hunter to Africa in a part where no elephants were found.
African Elephant Hunted
According to the travel company, Jaworski Jagdreisen, it organises regular hunting expeditions. The company insists that there are elephants in Zimbabwe, where the hunter was sent to. The hunter who can only be identified as Waldemar I, should have seen an elephant in the area as, “From what I know, (the hunter) should have seen elephant excrement there,” the company owner was quote as saying.
Although Jaworski Jagdreisen did organise for a second trip for Waldemar I and managed to shoot and kill a male elephant, the hunter still filed for damages for his first expedition, woth $130,000.
A court is due to rule on this claim on February 15.
