Don't feel all alone Grumps. When it comes to animals, I have a really soft side as well. I don't like to see any animal suffer.Ya I get it, but from what I saw the elephant was already down. I just think that if it was safe for the guide to approach then the animal should have just been put down on the spot. Yes the meat was likely donated to the locals, and I get that people have to eat, but I just don’t think in this case the animal should have suffered. That’s the soft side of me I guess.
