Default Pro hunter killed by crocodiles in Africa

This is not the first time this has happened.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/south-afr...120752716.html

It happened in 2010 also...

Kind of gives you pause but it's probably a good idea not to mess with African wildlife!!

I think if you go hunting - especially in Africa. Be prepared to have the tables turned.

I've always felt that big game hunting should be on a more equal footing.

Anytime you approach water in Africa, you just have to assume that a croc is waiting in that water for you.

Default Re: Pro hunter killed by crocodiles in Africa

A person who hunts in Africa can very easily be the "hunted"..in reference to the second link, i will give the guy credit. he was doing what he loved to do. he wasnt hunting but looking out for the welfare of mankind.

unfortunately, he picked a cause that had him travel in some very dangerous areas. i mean, if you ask me to go canoeing on an African river i will say "no thanks".

I remember reading the story of the guy in 2010. Really enjoyed reading about his life. Now it's happened again. You just don't mess with rivers in Africa.

I believe the story I read about Coetzee in 2010 said that crocs were huge and have actually dragged people off the kayaks and boats before.

This comment is ridiculous and I don't think we should celebrate the loss of a life anytime. Hunters, normally are some of the best nature lovers and preservers on the planet.

Agree, but it's a shame the crocs were killed. They didn't ask for the idiot to get that close to their habitat. Just looking at that water hole and you can tell it's home to Croc's. No way I would get close to those banks.

Quote:
In 2013, approximately 15,000 crocodiles were released into the Limpopo River from flood gates at the nearby Rakwena Crocodile Farm
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limpopo_River

He said Mr Van Zyl disappeared during a hunting safari last week.
His death is the latest in a series of fatal crocodile attacks in Zimbabwe.
Mr Louwrens told the BBC that Mr Van Zyl had gone on a hunting trip on the Zimbabwe-South Africa border with a local tracker and a pack of dogs.
He said the pair left their vehicle and went in different directions in search of crocodiles.

A search and rescue operation was launched after Mr Van Zyl’s dogs returned to their camp without him.

The hunter’s footprints were traced to river bank alongside his discarded rucksack. He was married, had two children and took foreign clients on hunting trips.

Mr Louwrens said staff from the Heritage Protection Group – an organisation which he heads and helps police fight crime in South Africa – informally helped the Zimbabwean authorities conduct the search.

“Permission was given for three Nile crocodiles in the area to be shot, and one of them contained Mr Van Zyl’s remains,” he said. “Subsequent DNA tests have proved the remains to be those of Mr Van Zyl.”

At least four fatal attacks by crocodiles have been reported in Zimbabwe this year.

One conservation group meanwhile has condemned the circumstances of his “senseless” death.

“[He] shouldn’t have been hunting in the first place. Animals in the wild… are wild! They are living, thinking beings with instincts for survival,” a statement by One Green Planet said.

I have seen the Nile Croc in person and they are huge! I should add this was out in the wild not a zoo.
