Elephants this side of DRC border safe, other side vulnerable to machine gunning poachers. Turns the stomach, no?

That fact genuinely does make me sick. Poor things.
it is sickening! but I can't help but saying "there's an elephant in the room"
Lovely , I bagged 2 of them in Tanzania , Poachers that is , see my pics . But lets not forget its the wealthy that deal in this dispicable trade .
This is a beautiful picture thankyou for sharing it with us x Just an annoyance that we cant still the guns.
If only we were able to tell them that there's great danger on the other side of the border :( I love elephants, beautiful picture.
Great photos - I have been looking forward to seeing them.
Beautiful and majestic thanks so much for sharing
They are so fantastic... I'm close to being speechless.
A Victorian visitor would be thinking how nice these would look on the wall... how distressing that monstrosities don't stop, just shift.
You are certainly seeing some amazing animals :)
beautiful and sad. Elephants are said to be the strongest creatures on earth - given their strength they could rule the world, yet they don't make use of it. Being the strongest and nothing docile and peacable - there is a great wisdom in it.
We shouldn't forget that a lot of the blame for this shocking trade lies with the buyers of ivory. Do you think if they knew what was involved they would think twice? No, me neither.
Simply amazing, yet with such unbelievable beauty there lives such unbelievable brutality. To think the lives of such majestic animals are so fragile in places like that, it boggles the mind.xxx
It'd be cool if the elephants could shoot missles out of their tusks at the poachers.
Wonderful, wonderful pictures - I'm really enjoying them! Re: shooting animals w/machine guns - the Republican nominee for VP shoots wolves from a helicopter in her state of Alaska. GRRRRRRR!
Seeing them walk freely just warms my heart.
What a great picture! I know why I dislike zoos... Thank you so much for sharing your pitures. Keep on the good work ^^
I freaking love elephants. They're so majestic xD
A few years ago, the wild mustangs herds in Nevada were being shot by people in helicopters and left injured or dead. Very sad and very scary that there are people out there who lack caring for creatures we should be protecting.
