ungrateful big eared noseybonk, if elephants came to the UK to try and save army chaps from being poached I can't see our lads being so beastly to them.

The U.K. should consider this an act of war and wipe them out to the last.

That is so sad. I imagine elephant that are stalked by poachers must become more dangerous. Should've been a poacher killed instead. RIP Hero.
