Bill Oddie has been shot and killed by poachers. We still don't have the full story but it seems that Oddie had left his burrow at first light and then headed to the nearby waterhole.
Unfortunately , poachers were waiting ( obviously tipped off to his secret location ) and shot him dead. His handlers arrived a few hours later to find his carcass at the waters edge.
It is thought Oddies Pelt and Tusks are already on there way to the Far Eastern market , where they are thought to be a cure for baldness and erectile dysfunction .
This news is especially hard for Conservationists to take , coming only months after Susan Boyle was clubbed to death by Fur Trappers.!!
