One of the last great “tuskers”, the beast estimated to be around 50 years old was heralded as Kenya’s biggest, oldest, and arguably most iconic elephant. Tourists from around the world would flock to see Satao in his prime. Yet his celebrity status, and the added protection it afforded him, was not enough to save Kenya’s most beloved bull elephant.
