In this image dated 2006 released by WWF-Canon, showing an African forest elephant mother and calf as they drink water at a salt lick in a rainforest clearing, in the Dzanga-Sangha reserve, Central African Republic. Elephant meat is flooding food markets in villages near the famed wildlife reserve in Central African Republic one month after rebels believed to be involved in poaching overthrew the government, conservationists said Thursday, April 25, 2013. The Dzanga-Sangha reserve in the rainforests of southwestern Central African Republic has been home to more than 3,400 forest elephants. Now the political chaos unleashed by a rebellion that overthrew Central African Republic's president of a decade has enabled elephant poachers to further their slaughter.(AP Photo/James Aldred, WWF-Canon)
