This should be due to genetic abnormality not evolution. Alabama Crimson Tide This is complete bull shit. Elephants have been born without tusk for thousands of years. Now if u want to say hunting is increasing the population of tuskless elephants, ok. If u want to call that evolution it’s disingenuous but whatever, its CNN

Wow!! I’ve been swimming a lot lately. Hoping to have gills by next summer 15 years? Highly doubt it. People always trying to reinforce their beliefs. This is survival of the fittest. More genes being passed down from tuskless elephants because they are not being killed News flash.....Evolution takes thousands of years

If this wasn't bullshit, why do Jews still have to have a bris? I’m no scientist, but I don’t think evolution at such a prominent level occurs thst fast. Well disgusting humans will then probably find some other thing they will want to kill them for!!!

Ivory poaching is changing the evolution of elephants, study findsResearchers in Mozambique found a dramatic shift within 15 years, illustrating how human activity can accelerate genetic changes in other species. Elephants can evolve because of poaching and humans can’t evolve for climate change interesting بس الانياب عدم وفرتها خطأ ما استحي اقول انه استراتيجي ! Hahahah I don't think it has anything to do with poaching but like in cattle and humans, some cattle dont have horns though parents may have and some humans are lighter or spotted or darker or black haired or blond or twisted hair that's not evolution but certain genetic changes

It may be in response to climate change. Green house affect.. Not in the process of evolution.. Christians would say it's God, evolution is not real 😒🤦😏😁😁 I don't agree...it is not a process of evolution....it may be in response to pollution This is just a Lie. As always CNN. Do a real journalism Nonsense.

'Rapid evolution' of tuskless elephants caused by ivory trade, scientists sayIvory poaching has led to a 'rapid evolution' of tuskless Africa n elephants, as elephants without tusks were far more likely to survive during the height of the ivory trade, according to new research. So start poaching the poachers. Hopefully they will have a chance to survive now.

NPR Cookie Consent and ChoicesEvolution fighting back against poachers. You’d think NPR would have coherently worded headlines/tweets, and you’d be wrong. The ones born without tusks are the ones left to breed. I hope they can survive without the tusks and have tons of babies.
