What Happens to an Elephant After It’s Killed by a Hunter? [VIDEO]

Many anti-hunters claim that elephants are only harvested for their ivory. These time-lapse images prove otherwise.

When an elephant hits the ground in Africa, it is like the ringing of a dinner bell for the locals. Within hours, the meat is stripped from the animal and hung out to dry for future consumption.

Watch how quickly (with the help of time-lapse) the whole process takes place.

There you have it, antis. An elephant killed by a hunter is utilized to the fullest to feed an entire village of locals. Aside from the culinary value, the money spent on the hunt is a huge benefit to people living in the area and to the elephants that inhabit the area.

Laws against transporting ivory into the U.S. have made it difficult for hunters seeking an elephant in recent years, but there are still areas where these massive animals can be taken legally and transported home.
