Satao - The Death of a Great Tusker

Satao was 50 yrs old and one of the largest elephants in the world. He was widely known in Tsavo East National Park, where he was observed with awe by many thousands of Tsavo’s visitors over the years.On May 30th, he was killed by an ivory poacher’s poisoned arrow to feed the seemingly insatiable demand for ivory.
