I don’t know if these husks were attained by poaching or not.

If they were from poaching… How does this happen? How can you change the minds of someone who thinks this is okay?…

If they weren’t, then a powerful picture but I’ll remind those what this picture reminded me of: Endangered animals like Elephants are hunted and killed everyday by poachers. Many times it’s because these poachers are in dire straits due to poverty and hunger and this is a way to eat or make money through trading in the black market. I would hope i wouldn’t do anything like that if put in the same position… It’s crazy to think about. You never know.
