Elephant carnage on the railroad tracks – Gabon

Here is a somewhat grizzly series of photos depicting the aftermath of what appears to be an elephant having been recently hit by a train and subsequently stripped of its meat by local villagers…Yes, that circular grey thing is an elephant ear.

I took this photo in Gabon at the end of 2012.

          1. Or turnshoes (my latest leather lust 😉 ) I reckon we are onto something sir! SHHH don’t tell anyone, we can just hang around the train stations in India on the off chance that one hits an elephant and then we can get first dibs on the ears…I reckon we might have to charge a bit for the end result though 😉

Say something...
