Krueger National Park in Africa had too many elephants, so park officials culled the herd, leaving a number of orphaned young bulls, which they relocated to a distant park. Sometime later, the distant park suffered a mysterious loss of rhinos. Eventually park officials determined it was the now teenaged bulls doing the damage.

The young bulls were entering musk (raging hormones) too early, which was causing their aggression. Why? Typically young bulls are nurtured by the herd into their early teens, at which time they are forced from the herd and move off to congregate with the mature bulls, who keep them in check.
