Police in Paris arrested a man who was found fleeing the Museum of Natural History with an elephant tusk over his shoulder; they found the chainsaw he used to harvest it still buzzing in the museum. The elephant in question is actually quite famous: It was a gift to Louis XIV from a Portuguese king in 1668, and lived for 13 years as part of Versailles' royal menagerie, where it was presumably treated to the finest of Parisian red wine, cigarettes and weary Existentialist musings. Fortunately, the tusk the thief ended up stealing was a fake, added to the elephant's skeleton in the 19th century. [Source]
