Endangered Animal Products

Campaign To Stop The Sale of Products Made From Endangered Animals On Oregon Ballot

Elephants could soon be on the brink of extinction because of illegal poaching, and even though the trafficking of ivory is something that starts overseas, the products from elephants and other endangered species can end up anywhere.

In an undercover investigation, the humane society of the United States showed just how much a part of Oregon stores and consumers play in the trafficking of parts from endangered animals.

Central Oregon Daily's Mackenzie Wilson shows why the exposure could help the momentum to pass a new measure on the November ballot to ban the sale of the products.
