Of particular interest Grantmissy...

From the time and date stamps on photo's taken by a tourist, of this tusker, it is confirmed that this tusker was alive 27mins before his carcass was discovered. :big_eyes:

Thank you Rosemary :thumbs_up:

He was the oldest and most dominant elephant bull in the Park. He was born in 1954, the year that the Park was fenced and he died in 2010. Who was this Tusker?
