The great elephant killed for junk jewellery, potions & lotions. If there is an after life may all those involved in the murder & illegal trade of these beautiful, intelligent & majestic creatures, rot in hell for all eternity.

What beautiful animals these are with their red skins and banded trunks. I guess it's survival for the poachers - they get money for the elephants.

If only people would stop buying ivory and rhino horn, the poachers woould be out of business. But will people learn before they are all gone. Sadly , I doubt it!
