The vet received numerous death threats and hate mail
from animal lovers after he shared his trophy kills online last year!
Infamous trophy hunter, Luciano Ponzetto, who has posed with online images of his big game kills, including a lion, a leopard, and a baby elephant, among others, for which he received numerous death threats and hate mail beginning last year after photographs of him posing alongside his trophy kills, dies at the age of 55.
Ponzetto had just returned from a hunting trip to Canada and was off again to hunt wild birds with friends in Colle delle Oche near the northwest city of Turin, when the controversial Italian veterinarian/big game hunter, slips on the ice and plunges 100 feet into a ravine.
“His body was recovered by helicopter and taken to a local hospital,” an Italian police spokesman told The Sun. “It looks like he slipped and fell when he was out hunting. He died instantly and there was nothing that could be done.”
