ELEPHANT'S REVENGE DEATH BY DOODY
Notorious ivory poacher found buried under pile of elephant poop

By JEAN DALEY

CRUEL ivory poacher went to meet his Maker the hard way when an angry elephant backed him against a tree, squatted like a collie -- and buried him alive under a Toyota- sized mound of stinky pachyderm poo.

"I'm sure there must be worse ways to die -- I just can't think of them," says Marshall Klein, a wildlife officer in Nairobi, Kenya. "Basically the poacher suffocated in a pile of elephant ca-ca.

"It must have been like falling in a tar pit. That stuff is very sticky. If you step in it by accident, it'll pull the shoes right off your feet. And the smell, good God! Think Porta-Potty on steroids."
