FWS crushes ivory supply in symbolic blow against poachers

DENVER -- Views of the downtown skyline and the snowcapped Rocky Mountains were obscured yesterday by a thick haze of ivory dust. In a bid to raise awareness of what many experts warn is a global spike in wildlife trafficking, the Fish and Wildlife Service pulverized its 6-ton stockpile of seized elephant ivory. The tusks and trinkets represented an estimated 3,000 dead elephants -- a small fraction of a global ivory trade that conservation officials believe was responsible for the killing of 30,000 elephants in 2012 alone.
