(WIDK By Mike Finiello) - An unprecedented ivory poaching spike leaves behind a horrific trail of dead.
A massive slaughter in Cameroon, Central Africa – at least 200 elephants have been killed in a four week killing spree, some estimates fearing that over a thousand elephants may have been killed since January due to a surge in ivory poaching.
According to Mail Online, the grisly aftermath of last month’s rampage was discovered by a photographer in Bouba N’djida National Park.
The Cameroon region is only one of many African countries that are at extreme risk of extinction of elephants and rhinos due to the ivory trade.
The government of Bouba N’djida has deployed as many as one hundred and fifty soldiers in the national park in an effort to catch these hunters and prevent any further trade ivory.
