Ivory poachers dramatic arrest after trying to sell elephant tusks to undercover investigators caught in photos

Ivory poachers dramatic arrest after trying to sell elephant tusks to undercover investigators caught in photos

The arrest of a group of hardened ivory poachers in a sting operation has been captured in a series of extraordinary photographs. 


William Ngulube, 32, Gabriel Mwale, 39, and Julias Kapomba, 42, were caught after attempting to sell ivory to an undercover investigator working for wildlife charity, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).


Just hours before the arrest, Ngulube shot and killed an endangered African bull elephant in the Zambian bush to sell on its ivory tusks.


Ngulube told the investigators he aimed the bullet through the animal’s lungs so it would become incapacitated and die slowly, not causing the poachers any trouble.
