Good start. Thanks Marcus--noted with disdain and disgust for the poachers.

I would prefer this sad result to be transferred to the poachers and hunters instead - that would be great.

Very depressing. BTW; -40 years ago there were ten million elephants in Africa. Think about it and try to figure out how incredibly stupid we humans can get...: ~ (

OK, I'll say it again; -HOW much longer do we have to wait for a United Nations Wildlife Protection Force...???

I think we need a total ban on the trading of ALL ivory - including 'old' / antique ivory. Everything.
We will lose the entire species otherwise.
