I watched the video before I knew there was a flap about it, no clue. My only take was that it didn't appear that either of the hunters had a brain much larger than a pea! Just from the danger standpoint. You cannot outrun a determined elephant. They could easily have become as Capstick once said about a deadly encounter with something. "the hunter was mixed up with enough top soil to start a modest tomato farm!" I don't see the ethical issue, and agree Namibia is getting a bit gun shy about publicity.
