More Elephant Tusks seized in 2011 than in any year since 1989

This is incredible when you think (assume) there is more awareness, more ways of getting caught, more punishment if you get caught… but yet this figure is higher than ever before.   They suggest around 23 tonnes of ivory was seized which represents around 2,500 elephants that died.

You see for people that like eating meat,  one kills pigs, cows, chickens etc for “survival” these elephants were killed purely to satisfy demands in Asia (surprised ? nope!) where it is used to make decorative objects.

It’s OK to kill so that you can use ivory to sit on your mantle piece ? What kind of selfish and sick human does that.  This also applies to those that have a deer head stuck on the wall.  When your mother or father dies, who you slice their head and nail it on the wall ?

Hmmm I guess not, so different rules if you’re an animal eh.

The sad thing is, we can place so many wardens and intelligence in place,  but it only takes one person that works on the dark side to make the whole system fail.  Money Talks, nothing new here then.
