Noted, little bit late but any disruption to the supply is good.

The biggest consumers of ivory are the China and Thailand.
Certain that China is the undisputed champion of all the worst atrocities of which man is able.
And unfortunately, if a heavy load was destroyed other elephants will be killed in order to respond to the request of the bastards of buyers.

Horrible so many died, but now more elephants will die to replace their loss.
