Tula Hatti

Peter Byrne, a resident of Parkdale, Oregon, was once a big game hunter in Nepal. Now dedicated to conservation, he returns to Nepal in search of an elephant he first encountered in the 1950s. The elephant, named Tula Hatti, is one of a dwindling herd of wild Asian elephants, and, measuring 11 feet at the shoulder, is probably the largest Asian elephant in the world.
