What a horrible crime. The punishment should fit the crime. Cut off their limbs - ALL of them.

On one hand this is great news; on the other hand, this news only came to be because of the horrible thing those people have done... There is no way back... those people might even pay for what they did, but the poor creature that was killed is actually the one who pay the highest price ever -- death -- for the stupidity of the most despicable species on Earth.

Sadly noted and my heart goes out to these beautiful Elephants who are dying for MANS greed and i think the Palm Oil plantation workers and management should also be sent to jail for poisoning the Elephants or even better killed and made an example of that its not o'k to kill these magnificent creatures,they are losing their land and homes for Palm oil plantations no wonder thay attack the local people as they have nowhere else to go,SHAMEFUL and SHOCKING how we treat our precious wildlife,greedy corrupt humans!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where will it all end!!! Thank you Carl.Liz Xx

- ugggh -
too horrible to actually look at for more than a second
but, the information is clear enough with just a quick glance
there are too many who lack empapthy for these kind souls - the elephants
- the extra tragedy was how the elephant was befriended by other humans,... so sad that this murder happened! -
how do we keep elephants safe from dangerous people???
how do we direct the financial rewards AWAY from killing for profit???
how do we change THE WORLD???
****
we change the world day by day
and by not giving up
and by continuing to care for the innocent so that others learn to do the same

Both the poachers, the brokers and anyone else found to be involved in the slaughter of the elephants, should receive exactly the same treatment that they gave the elephants - DEATH BY CHAINSAW.

All poachers, of any species, should be shot immediately just as the poachers do to the animals.

Thank you Cal. FIRST, please EVERYONE FLAG THE SPAM @#$# This person is EVERYWHERE and nothing is happening. I find flagging and messaging Eric/Care 2 Support gets results quickly.
As with all of the Animal Activists, I see little or no Gratitude for any little positive result.
I APPRECIATE ALL WHO DEDICATE THEIR LOVE TO THE HORRORS BESTOWED UPON THE VOICELESS, but as Mary Jane said, WE CANNOT TAKE BACK THOSE WHOM ARE GONE.
I feel statements like "Death By Chainsaw" to be no different then the offenders. "BURN IN HELL FOR ETERNITY", etc. Life ISN'T fair, but revengeful HATE IS what keeps me from signing petitions. There are enough A$$ WHOLE's that I battle, but don't wish anyone to be TORTURED. I can't handle this...
It is so BITTER-SWEET, so HEARTBREAKING to ME, but I am happy to pick up each crumb, ie:, a tiny bit of good news.
The whole world is DESPICABLE. I'm staying off ALL animal sites as I can't take it. ...

Elephants, one of the most sensitive of our animal cousins, MUST be protected.
We all know that the greedy don't care and those with the 'love of the kill' mentality need stopped, any way possible.

As go our animals, so go we.

Noted, when they are concern about them walking around the town it is one thing, when they start looking at how to use the Ivory it is another. When I was in Botswana, there were constant reminders in the papers not to hell at, or try to chase away elephants, as they would kill you.
