Poaching is a very real international crime ring that needs to be fought with the same force with which the poachers use against the animals. Until we adopt a take-no-prisoners attitude against them, and ALL countries, especially China, which leads the world in ivory sellers and fake "medicines" taken from these poached animals, take an active stance against poachers, these animals will continue to be pushed to the brink of extinction.

The poachers, the sellers and the buyers of ivory all need to be severely prosecuted and given long prison sentences.

Dandelion G. (386)
Wednesday August 6, 2014, 4:59 pm
I agree the buyers need to be also held accountable. If there were no buyers there would be no poachers.

Watched video but cant not find where to sign? this is so sad and cruel and the only way to stop this is to Ban the sale of Ivory, i just cant understand why it has not been banned!! Elephants are just about extinct and should be protected, all poachers should be HUNG as well as the buyers, i hope someone who knows more than i do could start a petition on banning the sale off Ivory this is the only way this cruel slaughter will stop, more has to be done so please someone who has the brains (not like me) start a petition on the ban for Ivory

This will continue until every elephant has been slaughtered. Why? Because no one is doing enough and the poachers,dealers and buyers are going unpunished - by that I mean they are still drawing breath.These evil people are not seriously challenged for their actions and corruption is rife.

N & S. Poachers need to be shot on sight. It should be made illegal to sell/buy ivory. I hope drastic measures, like I just mentioned, are taken immediately or these magnificent, beautiful elephants will be gone for good. I can not imagine life without elephants in the world. :-( Thanks, Sheryl.

For those who might think this is a graphic gore video it isn't, 99% of it shows people helping elephants, interview, or elephants doing what elephants should be doing.
