The elephant's revenge

I see where "professional big-game hunter" Ian Gibson has gone to his reward. Seems Mr. Gibson was hunting elephants in Zimbabwe when one of the prey turned the tables on him...

Cue the cliches!

The hunter becomes the hunted.

He died doing what he loved.

He died with his boots on, or at least his boot, given that he was missing a leg...

What is it that "professional hunters" actually do? I get hunting when non-professionals do it, like the locals who fill the freezer with venison at deer-hunting time. It has a purpose - feeding one's family. But professional hunting is just about killing animals for fun, isn't it?
