How is big game hunting by rich white dudes vacationing in Zimbabwe still a thing after Cecil the Lion? The Daily Mail reports that a German hunter flew to Zimbabwe earlier this month and paid $60,000 for a permit to hunt the largest elephant seen on the continent in 50 years. It was part of a 21-day hunting trip/murder spree. The elephant's tusks were so big that they dragged on the ground, and weighed 122 lbs each. 

 After killing the creature, the hunter proceeded to take super douchey victory photos:

What kind of asshole has fun ridding the world of its natural wonders?

Naturally, comedian Ricky Gervais is seeking revenge:
