WINDHOEK (Reuters) - The killing of a 50-year alpha elephant bull in Namibia has caused an uproar in the southern African nation, with conservation and tourism groups accusing the government of authorizing the hunt for the animal without proper cause.

The elephant was killed last week in the Omatjete area, 230 km (140 miles) from the coastal town of Swakopmund, by a government-appointed hunter who paid 120,000 Namibian dollars ($8,500). Authorities had declared it a “problem-causing animal”.
