Those who have seen Amboseli's Tim, that giant tusker, will be relieved to know he escaped unscathed from an arrow lodged in his ear.

Some good news.  Thanks.

Sheldricks reported today that they and KWS treated a second big tusker known to them, Ulysses, for a similar spear wound earlier this week. It would seem (and I inquired such on Twitter) that Amboseli has a spearing problem going. Waiting to see if they respond.
