......for its ivory......

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/tany..._14631030.html

Elephants have roamed the African wilderness for an estimated 55 million years. But over the past century around 90% of Africa’s elephants have been wiped out, mainly due to poaching driven by the global demand for elephant ivory.
Tragically this senseless slaughter continues. On average one African elephant is killed every 25 minutes for its precious tusks, with most ivory being smuggled to Asia, by ruthless criminal syndicates. China, Hong Kong, Thailand and Vietnam all have large legal and illegal ivory markets, where ivory is seen as a luxury status symbol.

Truly terrible how humans treat these intelligent gentle giants.

And as we observe, a rapid extinction of animals can result in unpredictible and dramatic changes in natural environment.

I see this thread is not very popular. I guess if you said that an idiot who contributes nothing to the planet or human civilization but murders elephants, is a worthless trash that should be shot, then this would cause more "interest".

Well, surely if you said that in the EU Parlament, you would be charged for it.
