French Customs employees pose for reporters next to about 698 elephant tusks, before crushing them into dust, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Thursday Feb. 6, 2014. France is crushing more than 3 tons of illegal ivory in Europe's first destruction of a stockpile of the banned elephant tusks. Thursday's pulverization is intended to send a message to poachers and traffickers that preservationists hope will help stem the illicit trade that endangers the species' survival.
