I keep reading this story and previous. I am beside myself that It's being done. I agree Christeen... It's eating me up and driving me crazy also because i cannot stop them and these monstors are insane. this really should be done to them. I would think the right person could do this and get away with it /kill these monsters now. They are NOT stopping and no one is doing anything about it.

This is murder and in a painful way. Large numbers of animals are being killed large and small. 80 elephants plus and others. NO MORE,PLEASE!!!

I hope poachers get cyanide poisoning too, so they know what it feels like!

This is killing me inside. Our most precious wildlife is being wiped out for money and nothing seems to stop it. I know there are folks who are trying to protect these animals and they are putting their own lives at risk in doing so, but it just keeps getting worse. The amur tigers being poached in record numbers, 81 elephants being poisoned, the rhinos and countless other animals are losing their lives and freedom so that these MotherFrs can make money off of it. The crisis seems overwhelming and I won't give up the fight but I must admit feeling defeated.

Until the problems of human overpopulation and the resulting poverty/habitat loss are solved, this WILL continue.

And this is the country Obama gave 10 million dollars to to protect its elephants. I don't know who I am more disgusted with- Obama or Zimbabue.
