    Lightbulb Namibian PH gored and trampled by Buffalo in hospital

    Felix Marnewecke, a Namibian big five PH was trampled by a wounded Buffalo yesterday afternoon. He was hunting in the north of Namibia, in the Caprivi strip along with another PH. After following the wounded Buffalo, it charged and got to Felix who then got penetrated by the horn in multiple places. Felix was lucky enough to have the other PH with him, whom then shot the Buffalo on top of him.

    A lot of things are still unclear, but I will post as soon as I get more news from the NAPHA (Namibia Professional Hunters Association).

    Currently Felix is in the hospital. The NAPHA office spoke to him this morning and he is keen to get back in the hunting field... Just shows you what rare breed a PH really is!

    Good new! Felix is not seriously injured. Very happy for him and his family indeed.


    "Dear Stan,

    Yes ist true, Felix was charged by a buffalo. We flew him out to Windhoek to
    the hospital.

    I spoke to him this morning. His injuries are not as bad as suspected and he
    will be fit for your hunt!!! He confirmed that just an hour ago.

    We first wanted to hear the doctors before we wanted to contact you on the
    issue! He was lucky!!

    Hope you are well.

    Best regards,"

    Good news Stan.

    Take this as a good sign for your hunt.
    Felix must be a tough customer or really stubborn.

    Hello all, I want to keep you updated on Felix.

    "I am in Cape Town recovering from the accident. I will be back in Namibia on Tuesday. The buffalo put a hole in my lower back, my right upper leg and my groin. I am able to walk but not very fast."
