Horrible, evil, sick people are killing elephants

No Gravatar

Among the planet’s most evil elements are those who are killing endangered elephants and rhinos for their horns and tusks. I will never understand what goes through the minds of people who can torture innocent people and animals – sometimes for nothing more than a motive for profit.

There most certainly is a special, incredibly hot corner of hell waiting these individuals.

The latest news is more than troubling, in that over 20,000 elephants were victims of poachers in 2013.

If the pace of killing continues, our kids could receive the news too soon that some evil humans have wiped two incredible species of animals off the face of the Earth.

The message splashed across the news headlines of late too often involves nasty levels of greed – be it from poaching to massive pay for CEOs, while hiring levels are not where they should be to more.

A baby rhino rescued after evil poachers killed his mother, is suffering through some emotional problems.

The degenerates who are killing rhinos to support their evil profit motives are some of the worst of the Earth’s worst. They would gladly wipe a species of animal off the face of the Earth for profit.

Wildlife poachers – particularly those who are killing endangered species – are some of the most evil and greed-filled people on the planet. Without an increased level of intervention, a number of incredible animal species will wiped off the face of the Earth.

But thankfully, modern technology is now being used to fight poaching – like drones, hidden cameras and GPS devices.

The fantastic Mother Nature Network reviews the high-tech tools.

 

“Battleground: Rhino Wars” premiers tonight on Animal Planet

The three-part miniseries – “Battleground: Rhino Wars” premiers tonight (9 p.m. March 7) on the Animal Planet cable network.

Four courageous veterans of the U.S. Special Forces have joined the fight to save rhinos from the evil poachers who are killing them at an alarming rate for their horns. These great animals will soon be wiped off the face of the Earth if more is not done to help them, by shutting down the poachers.

At the other end of this horrible industry are the people who sell products derived from rhino horns and the people who buy these products. The buyers are people who live in the stone ages and believe these products have special powers – and believe it’s somehow justified to send a majestic species of animal into extinction to get their hands on these products.

Once again, the greedy and the uneducated are a blight on the Earth.

Thailand is one of the countries still promoting the trade of products made from ivory – the tusks of endangered elephants.

It has to end. Greed continues to degrade the planet, destroy our environment and kills the Earth’s beautiful animals.

Over 80 violators were uncovered, involving about 900 violations, including illegal bear baiting, illegal taking of bears, deer and other wildlife, illegal use of dogs and the operation of illegal bear enclosures.

The four-year investigation targeted poachers in North Carolina and Georgia, with some work in adjacent states.

Officers with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission infiltrated poaching circles to document violations including bear baiting, illegal take of bears, deer and other wildlife, illegal use of dogs, operation of illegal bear enclosures in North Carolina, and guiding hunts on national forest lands without the required permits.
