Applaud Arrest of Ivory Smuggling Kingpin


Target: President of Interpol Mireille Ballestrazzi

Goal: Thank Interpol for the capture of ivory smuggling kingpin

The illegal wildlife trade has made billions of dollars by killing thousands of endangered animals. The ivory trade, which has resulted in the death of elephants and rhinos, has been fought by game rangers and international bodies. Interpol has recently caught Feisal Ali Mohamed, a kingpin of the ivory trade. The organization should be applauded for this action, as it will help save future elephants from death. Thank Interpol President Mireille Bellestrazzi for the organization’s action against the ivory trade.

The future of elephants and rhinos is grim. In Kenya alone, elephant poaching has been on the rise and biologists aren’t sure if the species will make a comeback. Asian countries use ivory for decorations and good luck charms, but this demand has resulted in the death of thousands of elephants. Countries, such as the United States, Tanzania, and Kenya, are working hard to end this demand. However, poachers have become as organized as drug rings, and it has placed a tremendous amount of pressure on game rangers.

The recent arrest of Feisal Ali Mohamed has brought some hope to biologists. The authorities found two tons of ivory—the equivalent of 114 elephants—when they raided Mohamed’s operation. Also arrested were Mohamed’s two accomplices. Mohamed is on a list of nine wanted criminals charged with running the illegal wildlife trade, and it was thanks to the publication of the list that authorities were able to capture the ivory trade kingpin.

The illegal wildlife trade has flared tremendously in recent years. It is unclear if this trade will die down, but strict laws and enforcement will be the only thing protecting endangered species from greedy poachers. Sign this petition and applaud President Mireille Ballestrazzi of Interpol for the organization’s action against the illegal ivory trade.


Dear President Mireille Ballestrazzi,

The illegal ivory trade has resulted in the death of thousands of elephants. The loss of life has led to the implementation of desperate measures enacted by several countries. Interpol has even stepped up, publishing a list of nine wanted crime bosses. It was thanks to this list that your organization was able to capture Feisal Ali Mohamed. I hope that this man will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, as the loss of 114 elephants is not worth any weight in gold.

Please continue to look out for the welfare of our elephants. These precious animals are crucial to the ecosystem of Africa, and we must do all we can to ensure their long-term survival.

    Thank you deeply INTERPOL President Ballestrazzi and your team — excellent work! keep it up!

    There are more out there who NEED to be arrested permanently! Let’s get them all! Once again, JOB WELL DONE!

    Think of the animals you are saving, the slow-suffering you are altogether eliminating … YOU ARE GOOD! TRULY, YOU ARE THE BEST!

  2. Congratulations on catching this scumbag. Please “punish” him to the full extent of the law, although no “punishment” could suffice for what he has done. Let’s hope for at least a few consecutive life sentences, and I’ll even look the other way if torture is involved. Now let’s hope you can catch a few more of these sleazes.

  3. How about banishing ivory altogether? Might also solve a problem or two …

  4. More light appearing at the end of the morbid tunnel, thank heavens!

  5. Now we need to see some REAL JUSTICE. Preferably a very slow death for the animal killer and his henchmen, by being crushed by elephants.

  6. We should use the bones of these criminals for jewelry … and while they are still alive. Let them experience the pain and agony that their animal victims have experienced.


  8. I just love to hear and view this ..people like the above are passionate about issues. Well done and take out the crap humans and get rid……..Every one of gods creatures deserves dignity and life…Vile humans are not wanted on this earth.

    Brilliant news! Now a long, slow and painful death is the punishment he deserves! Trampled by elephants would seem to be just!
