I notice on the photograph of the elephant that it has had it's tusks removed I presume in order to save it's life from poachers.This says it all about the human race.I think that the use of drones is a new idea and needs to be fully explored.

Public executions of poachers, is fine with me. Stop twiddling the thumbs, hunker down & stop these maggots. The cost, means nothing against the extinction of elephants, because people can't keep their mitts 2 themselves..Anyone caught in the ivory trade, should be punishable by death. Bring on the drones, do something.

3 elephants being killed every hour, is insane. The value of a elephants is much higher than a poacher..Poachers contribute nothing, but illegal activity & death of elephants.

They should equip the drones with missiles and machine guns and kill the poachers

We have to pull out all the stops and finally get the whole world to understand that our wildlife has to be protected .

If people would stop asking for animal parts then the killings would stop in a flash!
