Internet fueling illegal sale of ivory in U.S.

An eye opening article on both msnbc.com and cnn.com about the illegal ivory trade.

Here is the link to the msnbc one.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6091386/

"Americans have the world's biggest appetite for ivory, along with the Japanese and Europeans."

Yikes.

Shocking. Ebay immediately pulled the Hitler memorabilia...and the offers of organs for transplants. So why do they have "no comment" about elephant Ivory.

Perhaps we have to do a mail campaign to eBay's CEO and Board. Or boycott until they shut this down...

If you do a search on ebay with the words "Pre-ban ivory" , you will see that many items come up..about 75 this evening. Of course there is no way to certify that these things are "pre-ban" ...that is the term these people use as legal cover. I am really disgusted...what does it take to shut these people down...
