A Buffalo with broken horns?

  • dcardani by dcardani

    Is this a buffalo with broken horns? If so, was this probably something he/she lost in a fight, or some other natural way, or is this something poachers did to him/her?

    Sometimes they break horns during fights, or perhaps by colliding with a tree in the dark. I once saw one break a horn on my land-rover. Poachers wouldn't bother with the horns, they take the whole animal!
