It mightve been nice if you'd credited the petition author. In this case - me. It kinda stinks to submit your petition to the news, only to find someone else did it first and didn't bother to say someone else wrote it.

Anyone who purchases anything made of ivory is a criminal and until we start treating them as such this horrific slaughter will continue until all the elephants have gone.

Gladly signed CHER! I didn't know how the competition is so fierce and what you must go through to get a story placed for us to read and sign. I kind of think it doesn't matter who gets all this glory, it's about solidarity and getting the news to us all.

Please show poachers who have not a shred of humanity that we don't either when it comes to the way they spit death at our Elephants.How dare they come to Africa and just lay waste to our land, our wildlife. It must be brought under control or we will have nothing left!

Signed. People who buy ivory need to be spat upon and treated with disdain- ivory isn't an accessory- it is the tooth from a murdered elephant.

South Africa have to do more to stop the poaching or ask the world governments for more help
This is as bad as a war and if UK can send the army to Kenya to help the rangers then South Africa must send troops in and do the same More has to be done

Signed and noted! But it's not just the poaching that needs addressing, it's the whole chain of the trade, and those who turn a blind eye to what is going on that need to be held accountable and stopped.
