On Friday, April 13, 2012, His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain was on a “private hunting trip” in Botswana, Africa where he, along with his not exactly animal loving friends, where happily shooting and killing innocent elephants for “fun”.
Apparently, during his fun-filled day of watching innocent elephants suffer after being shot then slowly dying His Majesty had an “accidental fall” thus fracturing his “… right hip in three places.”
Well, I suppose you are expecting me to feel bad for the old king, right? Frankly, I don’t… that is what he gets for killing such beautiful creatures for “fun”.
Any way, King Juan Carlos I “…underwent surgery on Saturday morning at the San José Hospital in Madrid…” according to the BBC news.
The accident prone king has undergone four operations within the past two years according to AFP news. In June 2011, His Majesty was:
… given an artificial right knee-joint. In September 2011 he had a torn Achilles tendon repaired. In November 2011 the king wore sunglasses at an official ceremony to hide a black eye that a palace spokesman said he sustained when he was ‘hit by a doorknob.’ May 2010, he had a benign tumour removed from a lung.
