Zimbabwe is considering the sale of as many as 62 live elephants to China, France and the United Arab Emirates because Hwange National Park, the country's biggest game reserve, isn't receiving adequate state funding.

We have to stop this tragedy from getting worse, or we'll suffer from it further

It used to be a beautiful, well managed country when it was called Rhodesia. Poor elephants.

The plight of these intelligent ,magnificent giants has been the SHAME of mankind for the year 2014. I believe that even the useless United Nations should have intervened. Heart broken for our unique Elephant friends.
