In the first of two unusual crimes in Paris on Saturday, a man was arrested after breaking into the city's natural-history museum and sawing off the artificial tusk of an elephant skeleton belonging to King Louis XIV. While his mission to remove the tusk was successful, the man made it only mere blocks before being captured by police. The 7-lb. tusk was part of an elephant gifted to Louis XIV in 1668 by the king of Portugal. Just hours after the curious crime, another odd event transpired in Paris, when an anonymous bomb threat led authorities to evacuate the Eiffel Tower. The events are allegedly unrelated.
