POACHERS have shot dead at least six elephants in a single day at a national park in Ethiopia.
The carcasses of the animals were found without their tusks by the Omo River outside the Mago National Park on May 26. The group appeared to have been attacked while drinking at the river.
In recent years, a number of African countries have begun burning any ivory seized as part of attempts to deter poachers.
Elephant numbers have dropped by 62% over the last decade, and they could be mostly extinct by the end of the next decade
AN ESTIMATED 100 AFRICAN ELEPHANTS ARE BRUTALLY SLAUGHTERED EACH DAY BY POACHERS SEEKING IVORY.
The ivory trade is a complicated issue and most trade is illegal. Still, you can find ivory in markets around Africa and Asia, and even in the US and Europe.
