Chad elephant massacre

TWENTY-TWO elephants were found slaughtered for their ivory in Chad earlier this month.

The elephants were killed by camel-riding poachers in the south-west region of Chad, on the border with Cameroon.

This brings the total to at least 170 elephants killed for their ivory in this region of the central African country in the past 12 months. It is estimated that Chad's elephant population decreased by about 40 percent between 2006 and 2010.
