Copied this from another site Friends - I am sorry to bring you sad news from Zimbabwe. Owain Lewis, long time PH with Chifuti Safaris, was killed by a wounded buffalo this morning. We have lost a great man and dear friend. The account relayed to me was that Owain, an Appy, and the client were following up a wounded buffalo for the third day. The buffalo charged out of nowhere, knocking the Appy into the client both went flying and both lost rifles in the melee. The buffalo then charged Owain, hooked him and tossed him, breaking his neck. The Appy and the client then shot the buffalo off of Owain, but it was too late. I was told all the PHs and trackers in the Zambezi Valley stopped hunting and travelled to the site in Cherwore North to stay with the body until it was removed to Harare a classy tribute from his colleagues for sure. Buzz Charlton's tracker (Criton) was injured by a wounded elephant last week and remains hospitalized. Also read a French PH was killed in Cameroon by a buffalo. Tough season.
