To hell with human rights in issues such as this, just poison, kill all those responsible for and suspected of involvement in the atrocities against and killing of endangered animals

Forgot to add this, only seeing the c2 Causes article on Vultures reminded me...

The poachers are causing mass vulture deaths as well
No vultures, no alerts to the poisoning of the elephants

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted, shared. If the poor elephants didn't have bad luck, they would not have any luck at all. Sick, Sorry, and sadistic; another example of humanity stooping to its lowest level.

This is so horrible!!
I can't imagine how torturing this was for these poor elephants, they are such strong creatures and to be poisoned, it provably took a long time for them to die, how terrible what some sub-humans are capable to do.

I'm tired to say that some wild animals not have the necessary protection because the governments doesn't care about it!!!!!!

Poor animals, they didn't stand a chance being in their drinking water hole. How low will humanity go for greed? All lives matter! Thanks Jill.

There need to be stricter poaching penalties. Shooting the poachers will only bring more. They need to go after the cartels in Asia.
