Heroic British Helicopter Pilot Shot Dead By Elephant Poachers

Helicopter pilot Roger Gower killed by elephant poachers in Tanzania while working for a charity trying to bring them to justice. Poachers shot and killed Captain Roger, a helicopter pilot who was on a mission to help Rangers find killers of an elephant at Maswa Game Reserve near Serengeti National Park. Gower, a British national, was shot in midair by poachers with an AK47. He managed to fly the helicopter down into a tree, heroically allowing his colleague and friend to jump, but he died before his rescue teams arrived.

“Those poachers who killed Capt Roger are coward, evil, and sad people. A fine hearted individual gone too soon, and our hearts are broken. Everything must done to bring them to justice.” Lazaro Nyalandu, MP for for Singida North Constituency in Tanzania

Dan Friedkin, the founder of the Friedkin Conservation Fund, told the Press Association: “We are committed to honouring Roger and his work. We are also committed to ensuring that those responsible for this attack are found and brought to justice. We believe that Roger can best be honoured by redoubling our commitment to protect elephants and our priceless wildlife heritage.”
