Elephants under threat in Bangladesh

Human expansion in the Garo Hills has made elephants more violent.

    Human expansion in Bangladesh has made the nation's elephants increasingly violent.

    Home to the world's largest reserve of Asian elephants, Bangladesh has seen its elephant population dwindle due to poachers selling their tusks and genitals on the black market for upwards of $50,000.

    Elephants, looking for food, travel from deep within the Indian forest and have thus far destroyed over 600 homes in the villages of the Garo Hills.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from the Garo Hills.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
