Africa's Elephants Threatened Again and Again

With militia groups in Africa suspected of arming themselves through the illegal ivory trade, elephant poaching is not only causing concern among conservationists, it is also a security problem.

Am so with you Natasha - shoot them on sight, don't even bother asking them questions first - these flipping rubbish monsters don't deserve an iota of mercy.

I think Natasha said what we all think when we read these types of articles. If poachers know they are putting their lives on the line I bet alot less will do it.

Quote: "During a bloody incursion into Cameroon's Bouba Ndjida National Park last winter, poachers killed some 300 elephants for their ivory."
This is tragic and some drastic measures must be taken before it's too late. At this rate our great-grandchildren (maybe even our grandchildren) will never see a live elephant.
Quote: "Conservationists say it would be economic sabotage not to stop elephant killings because tourism will suffer."
So we're all supposed to just sit back and do nothing? When the elephant population has been decimated the tourists will be off elsewhere so where's Cameroon's logic here? Economic sabotage is a feeble excuse to cover the fact that they're incapable of protecting them and using prison sentences harsh enough to dissuade further elephant killings for the illegal ivory trade. Disgusting!

All countries MUST do more to halt the ivory trade.HUGE FINES , PRISON SENTENCES AND CONFISCATING goodsfor anyone with ivory or goods made from same since 1947(I think). The present penentalies are not enough of a deterrent . Stop the demand and the trade will also stop.

Time to have a kill poachers on sight policy, start it now before we have no more Elephants and that is something we should truly be ashamed of.
