Thanks for going further on this Jill,

I'm in no doubt whatsoever, that human trash are deliberately poisoning elephants, and have any other species of animals been found poisoned, only elephants mentioned.

Something I feel should be corrected, the surviving orphaned young elephant is not an it, I hate reading news articles and reports about animals, and the damn reporter / media agency referring to animals as it, animals are not an it, they are he or she, and reporters should show respect and more consideration, by taking the trouble to find out such detail.

For pity's sake - all they have to do to keep the elephants away is to keep bees there - experiments in Africa have proved that elephants are petrified of bees and avoid them like the plague - I can't believe these Bornean elephants are any different!

There is only one correct option, get rid of the damn oil plantations, and give elephants, animals their habitats back.

As for bees, if i had the intelligence to create genetically modified bees, I'd create a killer species that only attacked humans of certain races.

Noted in tears as the photo of the baby elephant trying to wake her dead mother in my paper here in England on saturday i found very upsetting,is there no animal left untouched by these evil killing monsters in these oil plantations,the beautiful animals were there long before HUMANS encroached on there land and are ruining everything for MONEY,GREED AND MORE MONEY,whereas the innocent animals are just trying to survive!!!!!!!!!!!! Terry i agree with you completely about creating a killer species for certain humans,well said my dear friend.Thank you Jill.Liz Xx

Have to mention that most of the general public (where I live anyway...) don't know anything about how unethical palm oil can be! So everybody please share this!
