Illegally imported ivory pulverized in New York’s Central Park

00:26

In what was intended as a message to poachers that crimes against wildlife will not be tolerated, nearly two tons of illegally imported ivory was pulverized in New York’s Central Park Thursday. Statues and other items made from the tusks of about 100 slaughtered elephants were fed into a rock crusher.
