One evening I watched a remarkable program on the Discovery channel about the mysterious killings of numerous rhinoceros somewhere in Africa. Many rhinos had been found dead after being badly beaten and gorged. It was clearly not the work of poachers who used guns and who took the rhinos’ horns.
These rhinos had been brutally beaten and mauled. Who could have done such a thing and why?
Animal experts investigating these unusual rhino killings soon learned that the killers were adolescent male
elephants roaming in small bands. They filmed these bands of teenage elephants chasing the rhinos, teasing them, throwing rocks and dust at them, pushing them down and preparing to gorge them with their tusks.
Fatherless aggression: In a longitudinal study of 1,197 fourth-grade students, researchers observed "greater levels of aggression in boys from mother-only households than from boys in mother-father households." Source: N. Vaden-Kierman, N. Ialongo, J. Pearson, and S. Kellam, "Household Family Structure and Children's Aggressive Behavior: A Longitudinal Study of Urban Elementary School Children," Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology 23, no. 5 (1995).
Violent rejection: Kids who exhibited violent behavior at school were 11 times as likely not to live with their fathers and six times as likely to have parents who were not married. Boys from families with absent fathers are at higher risk for violent behavior than boys from intact families.
