Poachers kill one of the largest animals in the world

  • Conservationists are not happy about the fact that poachers killed one of the largest elephants in the world. The 50-year-old elephant reportedly had huge tusks and was found in one of the largest and oldest parks in Kenya called Tsavo East National Park. 

    "Satao was shot dead ... killed by an ivory poacher's poisoned arrow to feed the seemingly insatiable demand for ivory in far off countries," non-profit organization Tsavo Trust said. 

    The elephant has been described as an icon by obituaries.
