At the Bouba N'Djida reserve in Cameroon about half of the elephants were recently killed by poachers.

Absolutely terrible!

The World Wide Fund for Nature said they sent in too few security personnel to take out the poachers.

As many as 200 elephants were killed

Rhinos May Be Poached Into Extinction

Filed under: EndangeredRhinosDanger!Crazzzzy

There has been a recent spike in rhino poaching, and it may lead the entire species right into extinction.

So park rangers have literally militarized.

This is crazy.

The have machine guns and run through drills and exercises so they can take on the poachers who kill poor rhinos just to get their horns.

26 poachers have died because of intense gun fights with the park rangers!

Check out the above video to hear more about their story.

L.A. Mountain Lion Killed By Poachers

Filed under: Sad SadLions

Mountain Lion

Awful!

State game wardens found a dead mountain lion in the Santa Monica Mountains in California.

The poor lion was caught, killed and mutilated by poachers.

He was a collared lion, having been tracked by researchers for over two years until his collar just recently stopped sending signals.

And that's when he was found.

This is the second lion to die recently in LA, the first having been killed during morning rush hour trying to cross the freeway.

It's so sad that we're unable to coexist. If only the lions could be more like the Moscow subway dogs…

Rhinos De-Horned To Stop Poachers

Filed under: Sad SadRhinos

This is so sad.

Poaching is so bad in South Africa, that private game reserves are literally removing the horns from rhinoceroses so poachers will stop slaughtering them.

They say the horn is like a nail or hoof, so trimming it down doesn't hurt the rhinos so that's good at least.

Check out the above video but beware, it is graphic.

We guess it is better to be alive with no horn, than dead.
