This proud individual, Teressa Groenwald-Hagerman, is the first woman to kill an elephant with a bow and arrow. She reportedly spent eight months working out to handle a bow big enough to take down an elephant in Zimbabwe. From The Telegraph:
The huntswoman wrote her own blog about her trip to Zimbabwe where she found the elephant in 2007."Woman hunter kills elephant with bow and arrow" (Thanks, Kirsten Anderson!)
She describes leaving the animal overnight lying on its side before returning to check it was actually dead the next day.
On the hunting website 'Hunts of a Lifetime' Hagerman wrote: "A man by the name of Larry, who is a videographer for Orion Multi Media, bet me I couldn't shoot a buffalo or elephant with a bow.
"He indicated only one or two women had completed the buffalo with a bow and no woman had ever taken an elephant with a bow. Of course, I couldn't turn down the challenge."
