“The guide walks over to the elephant, crouches down, and points near the animal’s ear, telling Wayne LaPierre to shoot the elephant there. Makris directs LaPierre to shoot low, accounting for the rifle scope. LaPierre fires and a confused expression comes over his face. Once again, he shoots the elephant in the wrong place. It’s still alive.” The only thing more pathetic than shooting an elephant is shooting one after aiming for one and missing the target, by a lot, multiple times.
