Comments / pictures

"The Adult female with straight Tusks was named Alyce"

" In June 1979, which was still the wet season, the AAs were way
out of the Park on a seasonal Migration. They apparently ran into Maasai, who unusually for that year, decided to spear some elephants. Alyce was killed and both her newborn calf and Amy's were either killed or died as a result of the turmoil. Amelia and her younger brother Adam were orphaned. It was sad for the family because it should not have been a time of losses for them."
