China's booming economy and demand for ivory is causing an upsurge of illegal elephant poaching in Kenya. On January 16, 2013, the Washington Post reported that 638 pieces of elephant ivory were seized at Kenya's main port.

It's a horrible thing to say, but it's time the African countries to announce that if anyone is caught, they will be jailed for life if the elephant is still alive, shot if the elephant is dead.

Signed,thanks. China which is the worlds biggest hell hole seems always to be the front runners for all animal related atrocities. Seriously this is not at all surprising that China is the largest consumer of both elephant tusks and rhino horns. SHAMEFULL. Perhaps that smog and pollution will swallow it whole into oblivion and far away from this earth. One can only hope.

Signed. As a temporary guest on this great planet, I am taking as little as I possibly can, while watching in horror as those around me behave as megalomaniacal killers, thieves, thugs. Why kill the life that is here? Beings are all the same, we all have the same spirit, capacity to experience love while here, and all else is to be avoided by all. At first hint that danger, the opposite of love is present, all beings flee or confront the danger. Why intrude upon the joys of living during our very short lifetimes here? We do not want to return unless it is a paradise, do we? We do not want the manager to call us and tell us that w must go to court, pay the fine, and return here to undergo the torments and thefts we committed during our previous visit as exacting restitution. Whatever we sow, we must reap. This is justice in the karmic wheel..

We must find a way to show our revulsion for the adoration of ivory- just as we would be appalled at the "trophies" a serial killer would take from their victims. Ivory comes from criminal activity, the illegal slaughter of intelligent beings.

Anyone found poaching should be shot. Anyone buying poached elephant parts should be shot. China should know that decent humans will not buy their bloody ivory trinkets that cost innocent lives.

these 'delicacies; in the far east are scary - from shark fin to ivory and all in between - really is an education issue so they understand the damage.. have to persuade the powers that be to get on board, poachers are just feeding the demand, so we have to stop the demand to be effective.

Martin Luther King Jr. is quoted as saying, “Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
