Oh no, that is terrible, :(
wonder what has caused that, so the guys must have been one of the last few to see him with both his tusks in tact. :?

Ooopsie!

I hope the damage is not too severe. Bit of a shocker as we have seen the old king of the tuskers in magnificent shape just days ago... :roll:

Sioux,

I made the spelling mistakes purposely as a self-reflecting ironic faux-pas, negating the legitimacy of my rude comment!

WTM would understand!

More importantly, I see the tusk problem is on "Tale of the Tusk" under "Animals".

For those who are interested, Duke was seen 2 days ago on the Muntshe Back loop. He seems to be in good health and the broken tusk doesnt seem to be bothering him. Still as docile as ever, not a crowd of vehicles either. Will post new pics of him as soon as they are downloaded.
