I agree edgar. I hate that someone killed another creature just to display all or part of its body. That's sick. What's the difference with hanging a human head on the wall that was shot and killed just because it happened to be a good looking specimen? Or worse, just because someone could.
The only exception to me would be if an animal was attacking you and you had to kill it to survive. Then I could see where it might have some meaning.
Re elephants, I doesn't take much research to figure out how they have been mistreated, tortured, killed and maimed all for entertainment or for a small part of their body.
