Hi everyone,

There is a horrendous practice where elephants are legally hunted and their body parts are legally imported into the US as trophies. Now their ears are being used as canvas for artwork.

Elephants are so endangered that researchers predict that by 2020, there could be none left in the wild.

It is despicable that they are still hunted in parts of Africa, and it is particularly disturbing that it is totally legal. It is also totally legal to import their hides and ears into the US.

Please visit my blog entry on this subject, vote on the poll and join in the discussion.

For the Elephants,
