KENYA-ELEPHANTS KILLED
Kenya: 4 tusk-less juveniles among 6 elephants killed by poachers

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 11:07 AM EDT
NAIROBI, Kenya


The Kenya Wildlife Services says its rangers are pursuing the poachers who killed six elephants, including four young ones without any tusks.

The wildlife service said Saturday that the killings took place on the edges of Tsavo West National Park. The ivory tusks were chopped off of two female adult elephants. All six carcasses had gunshot wounds.

Rangers on foot and in the air are tracking what is believed to be a group of four poachers.

Tsavo is Kenya's largest single contiguous ecosystem and is home to an estimated 11,000 elephants. A total of 65 elephants have been killed by poachers in Kenya so far this year.

Demand for ivory in Asia, particularly China, is fueling Africa's rising poaching trade. Conservationists fear the ivory demand will drive elephants to extinction.
