Killing elephants for their tusks is bizarre, barbaric and absolutely needless! How can anyone enjoy their meal when eating with ivory chopsticks is in comprehensible! Perhaps they may not realise that the indigestion and other ill feelings they get after eating with ivory chopsticks is as a result of the ivory!

As for other misguided use of ivory for ornaments etc simply demonstrates ignorance and its time for these people to step up and prove their worth on this planet or else should consider themselves as simply evil to indulge in such barbaric cruelty to animals for their parts such as elephant tusks.

So think about what you are doing each time you purchase ivory or other animal parts!!
