A gang of men in an Indonesian jungle have poisoned an endangered elephant in order to remove its tusks for sale on the ivory market.
The 15-year-old male elephant was butchered on an oil palm plantation in the Tamiang Hulu area of Aceh province.
After killing the elephant, the men removed the tusks, cut up the carcass and threw the remains into a river.
As forests have made way for palm oil plantations in the area, animals such as elephants and tigers have been forced into closer contact with people who are unaware of their importance.
According to environmental group WWF, there are only about 3000 elephants left in the whole of Indonesia.
