This is sad

Orac links to a story on how poachers taking tusked elephants out of the gene pool is causing the percentage of tuskless elephants to rise.

Still, that is a classic example of how natural selection works in response to a selection pressure--and maybe if this makes fewer elephants targets for poachers, it's a good thing in disguise.
