Over thirty years ago seven impressive elephant bulls, all with tusks weighing more than 50 kg each, could be found in Kruger National Park.

Rare photos of the Magnificent 7. They are an awesome bunch.

There needs to be a moratorium on all Elephants NOW!.

Ty, Jill.

The elephants are so big and grand!! I wish we could an invisible shield and protect them from those dam poachers. Or coat their tusks with something so that the poachers can't cut them off. I hate them and the people that use ivory. Maybe when they die they could be reincarnated into elephants. I'm glad there are people that care for them though. For that I am truly grateful. Thanks for the story.

Great story and the sad truth is, that we are losing them at an increasing pace... They have less than fifteen years to extinction if nothing miraculous happens...

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, liked, shared and read. When I saw the picture, I was sure it was another example of man killing all the magnificent elephants. I was partially right, but some died on their own. The tragedy is there is no doubt that there will ever again be 7 such magnificent animals. Sad and shameful for us squandering all of God's gifts.
