Original text on this topic:
During the late 1970s and early 1980s the numbers were drastically reduced by poaching. Carcasses riddled with automatic bullets were found at waterholes and the local population joined the massacre with their own .303 rifles. Horns were hacked off with pangas and. in the case of elephants, chain saws were used to remove the ivory.
