comment About the plight of Elephants and efforts to conserve them?
I don't think this is really answerable one way or the other. Poachers may not look carefully enough to see what they are aiming at, or worse, the yellow horn might attract more predators. Failing that anyone's actually studied this issue, the answers are just going to be a matter of opinion.
