Seems like the chinese/asians are responsible for alot of unneccessary animal abuse in this world, although if people from all points of earth would quit buying then we would not have to read articles like this and animals would not have to endure so much pain.

Thanks Nancy, and thanks to Mrs Clinton - for speaking out on behalf of the Elephants and for those of us who admire and respect them, but have no power to voice our fears for them and all of our threatened wildlife.

Thanks Hillary Clinton for speaking out We need all the worlds politicians to come out and condemn this
China has such an appalling record with just about everything If they didnt buy the ivory the people would not bother poaching this beautiful creature Shame on you China and any other nations that buy ivory

Thanks can you get them to authorize giving more miney and the proper weaponry to the game wardens and security that are trying to protect these creatures?
They are so miserably outgunned it's pathetic, and some money coud be used as bounties on the all levels of the chain.

Thank You for posting Nancy.
And thank you to Hillary Clinton for bringing the killing of elephants for their tusks to the forefront!
All countries need to become involved (except could no count on China), before Elephants and Rhino's become extinct. There is so much money involved in this business that it attracts the scum of the earth, and it costs money to enforce any further laws. If caught these poachers must get life in prison or (hate to say it), shot.
