It is hard to believe that petitions like this one still circulate it means there are still humans with such low perception and corrupted values it is truly unbelievable that we humans portray our self as most advanced yet capable of the lowest tolerance and behavior among the nature.

when you have humans that, for the almighty dollar or ruple or whatever,that have no concerns for protected wildlife or raping of the environment or humans such as John Browne then you will continue to have this unacceptable behavior from these "humans"

Tom Sky: Please post in your newspaper connections: "The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality." Arthur Schopenhauer, "The Basis of Morality." (I have more quotes?)

Signed. We have a piano with ivory keys. We would never purchase ivory but it's been in the family for many decades, and has been passed down from our great grandmother. It is a horrible, archaic trade that NEEDS to stop, but I will continue to play on the piano, as to throw it away or sell it would only further diminish the importance of those poor dear creatures who perished in order for it to be created.
I don't mean to detract from this grave issue but this is a similar issue I'd like...

Suchanh, it might BE the government who is funding the poaching. Certainly the government in the U.S. funds all kinds of horrible crimes...truly, you might want to check in to that.

Janice is correct, i.e., there's little doubt that government corruption plays a significant role in poaching the world over, making the loss of innumerable species all but but impossible to stop.

Sadly, animals -- be they endangered or not -- are nothing more than a commodity to some. We need to make the price of poaching -- for the gunmen to the end consumers -- much larger than the reward. Until then, it will remain a seller's market.

Wouldn't be surprised in the LEAST if people from here were funding it. Depending on who in the government you're talking about.

AS sad as this may seem to the Western mind, some poachers do what they do because of the various "needs" of the same people who what to shoot them. If you have a family to feed and your livelihood has been taken from you (lost your farm to Monsanto, land no longer fertile trying to keep up with Western touted conventional farming. Killing elephants for their ivory or for any reason (including destroying them as a species due to habitat encroachment ) is abhorrent, but let's look beyond...

Janice Burdick Very good point. We are spoiled living in this country and have taken our roles in this country for granted. There is a lot of money involved here and anybody could be involved.

It's about time to stop all these greedy people who want to get richer at wildlife expense.These animals are there for a reason and not a toy you can blow away any time you feel like it.I am a proud Canadian and love wildlife just as it is NOT TO BE TRAPPED OR KILLED.
Thank you for reading my opinion.

This is so terrible & sad we as humans do this for the money. I would never kill an animal just to have some trinket or piece of jewelry! I wouldn't kill any animal for any reason
Like one of your other viewers I could not watch the tape showing what they do to these animals. Who is really the animal here? I collect anything that has to do with elephants
