Riaan Naude, a South African trophy hunter notorious for “proudly” exhibiting photographs of himself with innocent animals he slaughtered for “sport,” has been slain. Pro Hunt Africa, owned by Naude, describes itself on its website as a “hunting and Eco Safari outfit” that killed several vulnerable and endangered animals around South Africa.
The environmentalist, Julio César Martnez, tweeted the information earlier this week.
“The hunter who murdered scores of wild animals, Riaan Naude, was killed while hunting in his vehicle,” tweeted Martinez.

The 55-year-old man was discovered dead with a head wound next to his vehicle in the province of Limpopo, South Africa, which is noted for its game reserves, including a portion of Kruger National Park.
South African Police said: “The man was lying with his face up and there was blood on his head and face.”
According to accounts, the lifeless body of Naude was discovered close to his vehicle. Apparently, Naude’s car overheated near Mokopane, causing him to drive off the road. Additionally, hunting guns, clothes, water, whiskey, and pajamas were discovered in his truck.
At this time, the motivation for Naude’s murder is unknown, but it is claimed that the villagers had a great deal of resentment for the hunter who had killed so many animals without reason.
This is shown by the different ways people have reacted to the news of Naude’s death. Some have talked about “karma,” and one person said, “Justice was finally done.”
