Hunter Killed While Tracking Two Lions During A Canned Hunt In South Africa
By Lauren Lewis
This weekend, yet another life was lost in South Africa during the senseless pursuit of a so-called “trophy.”
The victim was a 75-year-old Croatian man that was trying to kill two Lions in a Canned Hunt in Africa.
According to Total Croatia News, Pero Jelinic was shot to death on Saturday while on a lion trophy hunting expedition at the Leeubosch Lodge near Setlagole.
Jelinic and two fellow hunters had already killed one captive-bred lion and were tracking the second at the canned hunting facility when he was shot by unknown assailants. Police are
investigating the incident.
Slavko Perner, a longtime friend of the deceased big game hunter and former hotel and restaurant owner, told the local news outlet that Jelinic had spent the last year devoted to the things he
planned to accomplish in retirement.
Killing a confined animal is not an accomplishment.
