I rarely, if ever, post news items but this has so upset me that I needed to share. The largest wild elephant in Africa, Satao, who lived in Kenya, has been slaughtered for his enormous and stunning tusks. Local authorities who had come to know this giant said he had begun to hide in the bushes more and more and they were convinced he knew his tusks made him a target. With so much slaughter going on in the region, I have no reason to doubt his intuition. Truly makes me sick.
My thoughts go out to the hardworking people in the Kenya Wildlife Service who have an unsurmountable challenge keeping the elephants safe. Thank-you for all you do in trying to keep them safe from the greedy humans who murder them.
