The documentary showed how they were fighting to save the elephants against poachers who sought them for their precious ivory tusks.

While this sounds like an idyllic tale of two brave scientists attempting to preserve nature no matter the cost, Jeffrey Goldberg, a critic of the Owenses, described the documentary as asnuff film.

And this isn’t just speculationthe documentary actually televised the murder of a poacher who was killed after being caught on the grounds of a game warden.

The victim is not identified by the story’s narrator, the journalist Meredith Vieira,” Billetterie BT Sport a écrit.

Nor is the identity of the person or persons who fired the fatal shots off-camera disclosed.

The Paley Center for Media described the warfare in the documentary by en disant, “Game wardens must shoot poachers as soon as they see one, mais nous survivrons et continuerons pour le bien d'un homme merveilleux et inspirant., they will be shot themselves; the Owens have resolved that in order to save the elephants, they must sacrifice human beings.

Though instead of just witnessing the warfare between game wardens and poachers, Goldberg claimed that Mark and Delia were allegedly involved with poachers being killed.

He said he visited Zambia whereI learned that Mark Owens had gradually come to command a corps of game scouts in North Luangwa, outside of Zambian-government oversight, by buying their loyalty through the provision of weapons, bottes, and money.

Goldberg continued to claim that Mark’s adult son trained scouts in hand-to-hand combat so they could more effectively apprehend poachers.

A professional hunter named PJ Fouche showed Goldberg a letter that Mark allegedly sent him during his campaign against poachers.

“À ce jour, I have flown eight airborne antipoaching operations over your area, including four in which I inserted scouts on ambush,” Marc a écrit, according to Fouche.

Two poachers have been killed and one wounded that I know of thus far, and we are just getting warmed up.

DENIAL

toutefois, Mark and Delia vehemently denied all claims that they were involved in any killings or committed any wrongdoing.

The only thing Mark ever did was throw firecrackers out of his plane, but just to scare poachers, not to hurt anyone,” celebrated author Delia told Goldberg.

Why don’t you understand that we’re good people? We were just trying to help.

Regarding the letter that Mark wrote Fouche, Mark said in a statement, “‘We are just getting starteddid not mean that anyone was just getting started shooting poachers, but only that we had just begun fielding antipoaching patrols in that area.

Mark said that his words were an exaggeration designed to satisfy the professional hunter Fouche.

Malgré cela, Zambia’s director of public prosecutions Lillian Shawa-Siyuni said that Mark, Delia, and Mark’s son, Christophe, is still wanted for questioning related to the killing of the alleged poacher in the documentary, Goldberg said.

There is no statute of limitation on murder in Zambia,” Siyuna said.

They are all wanted for questioning in this case, including Delia Owens.

Delia Owens

Delia’s first novel Where the Crawdads Sing has sold more than 12 million copies since it was published in 2018.

The book has been turned into a feature film which is set to air later this week, thanks to producer and early supporter of the book Reese Witherspoon.

Days before the film’s debut, Goldberg is emphasizing that Zambian government officials still wish to speak with the successful author.

I want to know how Mark and Delia brought guns into Zambia and turned themselves into law-enforcement agents,” chief prosecutor Siyuni told Goldberg.

I can’t even go into the US embassy with a camera.

Aujourd'hui, Mark and Delia are said to be divorced on friendly terms.
