According to a popular story, when Ronald Reagan called the Animal Kingdom pet shop at Harrods, the luxury London department store, and asked if the store sold elephants, the agent on the line replied, "Would that be African or Indian, sir?"

This quote sums it up very well: "As long as a few countries are willing to bend the rules and fudge some paperwork, it doesn't really matter what everyone else does: A single country, even a single wildlife enforcement official, can undermine the entire global ôsystem"" And the self-centred, me-me-me rich always have enough money to get someone to bend the rules for them so they can get what they want.

Thanks for sharing this great article Carrie. I am certainly happy Harrod's has closed down their exotic animal zoo. The rest of the article shows how hard it is going to be to shut down these poachers and trafficers of endangered species, or any wild animals. There seems to be so much collusion, and of course big money. A United Nations Force should come into play to help stop this.I have read that there are drug cartels involved, as they love the big money! Loopholes need to be closed and more attention to ships, trains, trucks, airplanes for this illegal trade for the sake of the animals!!
