  1. Sickening animals can't even keep their essential tusks and horns.Murdered for some wealthy persons 'luxury' item.Prison sentences for them all, regardless of their status.

  2. I'd like to know how they get the tusks or rhino horns back into China? Do customs agents look at every container put on ships? How did that horror of a Chinese woman with a house full of tusks and rhino horns send all that to China and she'd been doing it for decades. 🙁 Send her back to China and she'd probably be thought of as a hero. 🙁 And the thing is none of it actually is effective for what ever miracle cure the Chinese have been told it is. People will believe what they want to believe. All that death for nothing. 🙁 Songs
