planning to have a romantic dinner to celebrate their nine-month anniversary.
But Rebecca Rowles and Sheldon never got their special moment – the field guide
died a horrific death after being gouged by an elephant at the private lodge
where they both worked.
Sheldon, who worked as a guide at Thornybush River Lodge near Hoedspruit, was gouged three times – twice in the leg and once more in the chest, Rebecca tells YOU. “The chest wound severed a major artery and even a surgeon couldn’t have saved him.”
And Rebecca, who also worked at the private lodge in a position front of house at Thornybush, is furious at Thornybush’s management. She believes they should’ve done more to prevent Sheldon’s death.
