I'm not sure that he is so much damaged as right-handed. All elephants (at least, all elephants with tusks) favour one tusk over the other. In the case of this one it seems to be the right tusk - if you look at the picture it is dirtier than the one the other side as well as being damaged. I think that this is simply extra wear and tear on the tusk that gets the most use. Great picture by the way.
