There is some truth to what he says, not that the way in which he did it + photo ops were all that humane or humble.

Due to overpopulation in recent years, ironically enough from animal conservation measures, many elephants die from hunger and/or devastate full areas of wildlife so quickly and thoroughly, that it cannot repair/regrow itself.

The following seems way more egregious, IMO (Killig to win a bet??):
