Hunter Shot Dead While Trying To Kill Lion –

The 75-year-old big game hunter was hunting in South Africa when he was hit by a stray bullet in what is being described as a freak accident. It seems that Jelenic had already shot dead another lion and he was ready to kill another one when a bullet hit Jelenic. Police still have no idea who shot and killed Jelenic, but they do not suspect foul play. According to Slavko Pernar, a friend of Jelenic, Jelenic wanted to get a get a lion trophy after hunting “everything that could be hunted in Europe.”

 

Well that plan didn’t go well…

Pernar also had this to say about his pal:

“For the past year he had leased his hotel to dedicate himself to the things he planned to accomplish and enjoy a deserved retirement. He, unfortunately, received the ugliest end – he died in South Africa doing what he loved. His office, a hunting hall, was full of trophies, deer and bear specimens and everything that could be hunted in Croatia and Europe.”

According to police, “a case of culpable homicide has been opened, and police are also investigating charges of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.”

If there is a lesson to be learned here is don’t go off shooting animals for fun.
