Satao, the world's biggest elephant, has been killed by poachers with a poison-tipped arrow in Kenya sending shockwaves among the wildlife community.
The elephant was killed for its long tusks as the poachers had chopped off its entire face after killing it.
Satao was one of the last few great elephants whose tusks reach up to the ground, and was seen as having the potential to breed bull elephants of its kind.
The reason why this great elephant is now dead can entirely be found in the global economic system that humans have accepted as TINA ("there is no alternative"). And not just because there is a market for elephant tusks, but, more importantly, the park is simply understaffed. This is the kind of shit you get with austerity.
