As I understand it (and I could be wrong), the elephant population in some areas is greater than what is sustainable. Consequently, predators, including humans who pay a relatively large amount of money for a license, can reduce the population by some amount in order to maintain a sustainable herd. If it happened that the elephant in question was culled from a herd in an area of greater than sustainable population, and its meat was eaten (sharing with local villages is a common practice, or so I've heard), then I have no problem with this animal being taken.
