“Sad news to share this afternoon: Valli, our big elephant bull, had died. Conservation Manager, John Adendorff, flew over the Park early this morning and found him killed about five kilometres from Hapoor. He seems to have gotten into a fight with another bull and died from his injuries about a week ago.

He was one of four Kruger bulls introduced into Addo in the early 2000s. Two of the bulls were really large – Skukuza and Valli. Skukuza met the same fate in 2010.
