gbu parsons 300CHICAGO (Reuters) – Social media is great for spreading the word but sometimes its content can become the elephant in the room, quite literally.

Your article incorrectly says that Parsons shot an elephant in Kenya.

The truth is that he shot the elephant in Zimbabwe.


Indeed. Several readers noticed this. We have corrected the item: GBU Editor
