Australian big game hunter resigns from VP position at private club after backlash over trophy photos


An Australian businessman and big game hunter has resigned from his role as vice president of a private club after facing backlash for posing with the bodies of animals he shot on safari.

The controversial photos and videos surfaced online, showing Nick Haridemos, the former exec of Hellenic Club, with several of his kills, including a bull elephant and a baboon he dressed up in sunglasses and hat.

The images were reportedly taken sometime between 2010 and 2016 on a number of trips to Africa and were posted to a public Photobucket account by the user “nickha1.” They were also shared on Twitter and in an online forum where hunters report their kills, according to the Canberra Times.
