Let's hope they come to their senses before this is allowed to happen. How horrible to think that these beautiful animals could become extinct at the hands of people who don't care about anything but the greed that they wallow in. How Horrible!!!!

Do we really need more diamonds? There are plenty of diamonds, and the demand for them is artificially created, anyway.

I do hope not. Such beautiful creatures. And 'worth' immeasurably more than any sparkling stone...

More greed....and shame on the government for allowing the diamond mines to come in when it states that it is illegal there. What a magnificent animal to be allowed to go extinct. I am hoping something will be done to prevent this.
