Tourist in Kenya Killed by Elephant He Was Trying to Photograph

An Italian tourist in the coastal region of Kenya was killed by an elephant this week after the man got too close while trying to take a photograph.

The 66-year-old tourist and his wife were having breakfast in their tent at the Swara Camp in Kulalu Ranch when the man spotted the elephant at a watering hole. He went to get a better look and a memorable snapshot, but his proximity provoked the animal to charge him.

After sustaining serious injuries to his left leg, the man died at the camp.
