GRAPHIC CONTENTIn this photograph taken on July 14, 2013, a resident looks at the carcass of a male Sumatran elephant, its head and trunks mutilated and ivory tusks missing, in Aceh Jaya district on Indonesia's Sumatra island. According to Natural Resources Conservation Agency the elephant was killed by a booby trap set up by unidentified people. In the month of May three elephants were found dead in Tesso Nilo National Park, south of Aceh. Fewer than 3,000 endangered Sumatran elephants remain in the wild, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Rampant expansion of palm oil, paper plantations, and mines, has destroyed nearly 70 percent of the Sumatran elephant's forest habitat over 25 years, conservationist says, and the animals remain a target of poaching.
