I guess now they can cut down the rain-forest as no one will need to protest to protect the elephants.
Hope that little baby is taken care of!
We don't really know whether they have in fact been poisoned and the first thing to do is to perform careful autopsies with toxicological testing and bacteriological and virus studies too.
If this is due to and epidemic, then other elephants may be in danger too.

Sadly noted. Does it matter if it was intended or just carelessness?

You would have to be bereft of any that makes you human to do such a thing.

This is dreadful.Chances are that it was more than likely a deliberate posioning.
The photo of the dead Mother and her baby is very sad.

I wish we could boycott whatever the villagers poisoned the elephants for, to show that if they kill elephants, they will actually lose business...
