South Africa recently lifted a ban on killing elephants, specifying that hunters are required to act quickly and humanely and use rifles with a minimum caliber of .375.

Ending the 13-year ban on elephant culls has drawn the ire of some animal-rights activists, but government officials contend the move is needed to control a population that has grown from 8,000 in 1995 to more than 18,000.

Elephants have no non-human predators and can turn woodlands into grass and stubs in just a few years.

No doubt Ted Nugent is already making plans to book an upcoming gig in Johannesburg.
