On The Hunt

Wednesday 25th February / posted by Chris Wheeldon

Ohh Ahh Glenn McGrath – the former Australian fast bowler has been hit for six this week, since photographs emerged online of him posing with a dead elephant he allegedly killed while on a hunting trip in Zimbabwe in 2008.

McGrath, who has been open about his love for hunting in the past, is also shown posing with dead hyenas and a buffalo, as well as their skulls – and the elephant’s giant tusks.

McGrath says he deeply regrets his actions and that it was an extremely difficult time in his life.

His wife Jane had died in July that year.

But the public’s response has been unforgiving, with some calling for the boycott of his eponymous charity, which raises money to fight breast cancer.

RTRFM reporter Luke Pegrum spoke to RSPCA WA President Lynne Bradshaw for her perspective on the story and to find out more about the African big game hunting industry.
