INNOCENT, GENTLE CREATURES BUTCHERED BY AFRICAN POACHERS SO THAT WEALTHY ASIANS CAN FEEL THAT THEY HAVE INCREASED THEIR SEX DRIVE OR CURED SOME DISEASE WITH THEIR IDIOTIC, IMAGINED “ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE”. NO SHORTAGE OF MORONS TO LITTER THE PLANET
Garamba National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo is under constant assault by renegade Congolese soldiers, gunmen from South Sudan and others. And this is just a slice of the carnage: international wildlife regulators say 20,000 elephants were killed in Africa alone in 2013. The Johannesburg-based African Parks group, which manages the park, said that since mid-May, the 5,000 square kilometer Garamba National Park in Congo has faced an onslaught from several bands of poachers who have already killed 4 percent of its elephant population.“The situation is extremely serious,” Garamba Park Manger Jean-Marc Froment said in the statement. “The park is under attack on all fronts.” A 2012 census found just 2,000 elephants in Garamba Park, down from 20,000 in the 1960s.One group is shooting the elephants with rifles from a helicopter and then taking off their tusks with a chain saw, as well as removing the elephants’ brains and genitals.Conservationists say a thriving ivory market in Asia is helping to fuel the worst poaching epidemic of African elephants in decades. In some cases the attacks in Garamba seem to be indiscriminate, with baby elephants that do not yet possess the ivory tusks also being killed. African Parks, which runs seven parks in six countries in cooperation with local authorities, said the poachers include renegade elements of the Congolese army, gunmen from South Sudan, and members of the Lord’s Resistance Army, a militant rebel group whose fugitive leader Joseph Kony is an alleged war criminal. In one skirmish with poachers, park guards had to try to protect themselves from hand grenades thrown by Southern Sudanese poachers, some wearing military uniforms. In 2009, the group attacked the park’s headquarters, killing 15 park employees and family members. The Geneva-based Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora said Friday that 20,000 elephants were killed in 2013, but that overall poaching was on the decline due to better law enforcement. The spike in attacks on Garamba, however, suggests that poachers may just be shifting to different targets. The world’s biggest elephant, Satao of Kenya, has been killed by a poacher’s poisoned arrow. It was confirmed today by a statement on the Tsavo Trust facebook page. Satao’s body was discovered in a swamp on 2nd June but reports had to be held back while confirmation was made and the report cleared for publication by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS). Satao was an iconic elephant in the Tsavo East National Park and was well-known and loved across all of Kenya. His confirmed death has reportedly sent a shockwave across the country.It is reported that the elephant was shot on 30th May with a poisoned arrow and it was not until the 2nd June that a body of a large elephant was found in the swamp. It was immediately suspected to be Satao but tests had to be carried out to confirm the identity of the elephants because of his iconic status. Attempts to protect Satao from the poachers included aerial surveillance and ground forces watching over the animal. The scale of the poaching epidemic spreading across Africa though meant that eventually the poachers got through the protection and managed to kill him. The killers hacked off the face of the mighty beast in order to take the tusks which were so large that they reached the ground. Many garbage people in Asia believe that the tusks of these animals cure disease or increase their sexual drive as if it needed to be increased with 5 billion of them already on the planet.
