The man, said to be a German who paid £39,000 to go on the hunt in a national park in Zimbabwe, was pictured with the corpse of the elephant, thought to be the largest killed in 30 years with 120lb tusks.

Animal rights group Peta Germany has offered a 1,000 euro (£735) reward for the man’s identity.

Walter Palmer caused outrage when he took a picture with the lifeless body of Cecil the lion

ime’s about up for trophy hunters and the world wants to know exactly who this cowardly man is who’s in hiding after gunning down a magnificent elephant, who, like Cecil the lion, wanted only to be left in peace

Ingrid Newkirk, Peta president

Peta president Ingrid Newkirk said: “Time’s about up for trophy hunters and the world wants to know exactly who this cowardly man is who’s in hiding after gunning down a magnificent elephant, who, like Cecil the lion, wanted only to be left in peace.”

Peta wants the man to face the consequences of “killing and hacking apart an animal to feed his psychotic need to take a life”.

Poacher being apprehended in Kruger National Park

The elephant may have been Nkombo, a massive bull from the Kruger National Park in South Africa, just over the border. The row follows global outrage sparked by US dentist Walter Palmer, who shot Cecil with a high-powered crossbow.

Zimbabwe conservationist Johnny Rodrigues said: “We need international laws and the UN to make the killing and import of these animals illegal.”

 Dominic Dyre, of the Born Free Foundation, said: “Elephants are being lost at a massive rate. Allowing trophy hunting gives the green light to poaching.

“The money goes back to President Robert Mugabe’s corrupt regime.”

  1. Been a PETA member for years and admire they way that organization doesn’t back down. They did something similar to this a few years ago. Two guys from France were going through the Grand Canyon, and they were feeding a squirrel and coaxing him over to them. Then when he got close enough, one of the guys kicked the little fellow over the edge. I don’t know if the reward worked and if they found them, but I was really hoping . . .

    • Thank you Denver Ford! This is exactly the kind of intelligence information that is needed before commencing direct action campaigns. It can start with internet and telephone harassment and hopefully escalate from there.

      • I wish Anonymous would expose the identities of those in the photo that appeared on one of the social media sites, looking like the KKK and holding up the American flag, guns and a dead wolf? Maybe they already have.

        At least this scumbag has been exposed.

  3. It should be out lawed throughout the world. We need to leave nature alone. Why destroy innocent beauty. It’s senseless! !!!!

  4. I completely am for putting a bounty on the heads of ALL poachers…and murderers, like Walter Palmer. Their actions hurt the entire world. They need to experience life in an outdoor cage, for the rest of their pitiful lives.
