A businessman from Georgia has been photographed standing beside baby elephants, holding a gun.

TopGen Energy partner, Mike Jines reportedly shot and killed the elephants while in Zimbabwe, Africa. The alleged hunt took place in October 2018, but the photos have only just come to public attention.

It has been alleged that Jines went trophy hunting accompanied by professional hunter Max ‘Buzz’ Delezenne.

The upsetting photographs have since gone viral, with many people expressing absolute horror. Some have even called for a boycott of TopGen Energy.

One person tweeted:

There’s evil, and then there’s you #mikejines one can only hope the universe and all that is just punish you for killing those elephants. Boycott #TopGenEnergy.

Another said:

Boycott #TopGenEnergy. Mike Jines is a barbarian. Killing a baby Elephant for fun? How is this fun? Cruel and Heinous! An innocent, intelligent, and beautiful creature’s life was taken for NO REASON!

Jines has claimed he killed the elephants in self-defence, and that the elephants had charged at him. He has also stated the elephants were mature.

As reported by CBS46, Jines has claimed the elephants ‘were shot in self-defense, in an unprovoked charge and both elephants were fully mature cows, not juveniles’.
