WARSAW (Reuters) A Polish hunter who dreamt of shooting an elephant has sued a German-based travel company after it sent him to a part of Africa where he said there were no elephants to be found, a newspaper reported Wednesday.
The company, Jaworski Jagdreisen, which organises hunting expeditions, insists there are elephants in the area of Zimbabwe it sent the hunter, identified only as Waldemar I, the Rzeczpospolita daily newspaper said...

I always wondered how many Poles it took to kill an elephant. Now I may never know.
This is screaming for a Polish joke (of which I am a member).
Of course, proving that is going to be virtually impossible without an informant inside the tour company.
That's German for "Dewey, Cheatem, and Howe: Purveyors of Fine Elephants to Polish Kings".
The same company has him booked for the 2011 season Snipe hunt.
If the tour company represented themselves as professionally knowledgeable and competent, and it turns out they weren’t, they could be deemed to have committed professional negligence. No insider needed.
He should have gone RINO hunting instead.
I guess no one discussed the elephant in the room then.
When they see a sign that said “Bear left,” they went home.
The snipe hunt is on if he has a left-handed wrench...
Yeah, like everybody needs 6000 pounds of grey kielbasa.
If a political party promises to provide me with real elephants (i.e. Reagan Republicans) to support, and then provides only Rhinceros after Rhinoceros, do I have grounds to sue?
Ha ha! Rofl!
He also sued them for failing to provide the promised hunting pajamas....
Reminds me of a true story: Two Polish guys are out fishing in a rented boat. They fish all day long with no results. Then, about 30 minutes before the boat is due back, they hit a big school of fish. Stashew tells his buddy Antoniusz “Hey Anto, do something to mark this spot so when we come back tomorrow we can catch more fish.” They then take the boat back and as they are driving home, Stash says to Anto “What did you do to mark that great fishing spot?” Anto says “I painted a big arrow on the front of the boat pointing to that spot.” Stash thinks about it and then says “Anto, you stupid idiot - what happens tomorrow if we don’t get the same boat?” True story.
“I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don’t know. Later on I shot two bucks. That was the biggest game I shot all day.’’- Groucho Marx.
“The snipe hunt is on if he has a left-handed wrench...’’ Or how about a blade-less knife without a handle?
That one always makes me laugh...
Sheesh send him over here we have a bunch of RINOS claiming to be elephants...
No good anymore...blade-less knifes without handles are now illegal in 26 states...
Are you sure? Dang! Wait a minute ... I’m not so sure. That is I don’t think so..but I doubt it.
"From what I know, (the hunter) should have seen elephant excrement there," it quoted the company owner as saying.
Even though the company organised a second trip for the luckless hunter during which he managed to kill a male elephant, the man still filed for damages worth $130,000 over his first expedition.
A court is due to rule on his claim on February 15, the paper said.
