This news just broke my heart today.  It seems that 36 baby elephants, aged 2.5 to 5 years, were ripped away from their mothers in the Hwange National Park for sale to private zoos and circuses abroad.  I can’t think of anything more traumatic and horrifying for those little creatures (and their mothers), except maybe witnessing the murder of their mothers by poachers, which occurs with wonton abandon in Zimbabwe.

To wit:

In the words of Rainforest Rescue:

Their chances of survival without their mothers are very slim.

Hell, I even wrote to the government minister that this petition is addressed to, via his LinkedIn Profile:

I also wrote on his Facebook wall:

Shit, why not on Twitter too:

I’m fucking hopping mad, angry, sickened, saddened and absolutely frustrated that such tactics occur in the 21st Century.

Please help — send messages.  Put pressure on Zimbabwe.
