Default Giraffe Hunting


In pursuit of your interest in giraffe hunting I dug up an article on the subject. But first the Alamy pics you show have it all wrong. No swords or camels involved. Runned down on horseback and hamstrung with a spear.

Great and detailed article by Ian Cunnison. Giraffe Hunting Among the Humr, Sudan Notes and Records V.39 (1958). Available via Jstor if this link doesn't work.

Also, a lesser article by R. Davies of same group. SNR, V.2 1919. ELEPHANT AND GIRAFFE HUNTING IN THE HOMR TRIBE (SOUTH-WEST KORDOFAN.

Take care,
