(LONDON DAILY MAIL) Poachers have slaughtered 86 elephants in a single week in Chad, officials said today.

Armed gangs reportedly killed the herds, which included 33 pregnant females, before hacking out and stealing their tusks.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare said the bloody killing spree in the central African country was the worst mass slaughter of elephants this year.
