There are reports that Tanzanian police have seized more than 200 elephant tusks hidden in a coffin and in fertilizer bags. Officials say the seizure points to rising instances of poaching in the east African country

Oh Cher ~ Noted with wet eyes at what Man does. So much Loss and so much disregard for what is truly special not Tusks, but the Living Elephant, what awesome and amazing animals, I hope I am not living when the Elephant goes Extinct!

May all of those Poachers be struck with lightening and those PEOPLE that purchase elephant body parts have their house burned and be put on the street with a shopping cart! No Purchase No Poachers PERIOD!!! The items that were found hidden should be put into a museum.

How to keep ahead of this level of greed, stupidity on a continent the size of Africa, is simply impossible.
Enact laws to shoot to kill anyone found poaching?

Wild animal poaching has to end before all our beautiful friends are gone.

Noted what a shame, if places like China would stop buying things like Elephant tusks it would certainly help..thanks Cher!
