Poachers just killed one of Kenya’s most beloved and iconic elephants

A great elephant named Satao — a cultural icon and one of the last of its kind — was slaughtered by poachers earlier this month. According to Kenyan authorities, rangers at Tsavo National Park came across a giant carcass a few weeks earlier and were able to identify it as the famed elephant.

"Today it is with enormous regret that we confirm there is no doubt that Satao is dead, killed by an ivory poacher’s poisoned arrow to feed the seemingly insatiable demand for ivory in far off countries," announced the Tsavo Trust, a conservation non-profit, on Friday. "A great life lost so that someone far away can have a trinket on their mantelpiece."

Satao was one of Africa’s last “tuskers,” identified by long tusks that almost reach the ground. Around 45 to 50 years old, the enormous elephant was a popular tourist attraction and had impressive tusks that weighed over 100 pounds.
