Kenyan elephant with giant tusks slain

(CNN)


"A great life lost so that someone far away can have a trinket on their mantlepiece. Rest in peace, old friend, you will be missed." = In memory of idol Satao, the ancient African elephant, savagely poached for its elite tusks. We are desolate. Terrible men win.
