I wish they would seize the POS these were going to!

They could easily have a "sting" scenario ready in place for this
Why not let them make it through, then follow and collect information? Then make arrests?

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted, shared. Unbelievably sad, man kills even the babies for ivory. What will he kill after all the elephants go? It reminds me of the movie "They shoot horses, don't they?".

The poachers and the a**holes who buy ivory should die of a painful disease with no cure. (darn karma, why does it not fall down on them like a ton of bricks...)

I really don't know how these people live with themselves. Leave the elephant alone to live their lives in peace.
