This is about as stupid as it comes. Doing this only INCREASES the demand and the VALUE of Ivory and horn, thus making it more profitable…you know, kinda like the war on drugs, been at that since 1971 at a cost of $1 TRILLION VERY LARGE! Confiscate the Ivory and horn, then DUMP it on the market, 120 Tons would deeply depress the price and thus the demand and thus the poaching.

San Diego zoo officials have burned items containing rhinoceros horn with an estimated black market value of $1 million in a symbolic gesture to show the United States is committed to ending illegal wildlife trafficking.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service partnered with the zoo and California Department of Fish and Wildlife on Thursday to hold the massive bonfire of confiscated items at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Officials say it was the first of its kind in the nation.
A new California law prohibits the sale or purchase of rhino horn and ivory products.
Officials say a rhino is poached every eight hours in Africa and they could become extinct in the wild in 15 years.

In Kenya 120 Tons of elephant ivory and 1.3 tons of Rino horn were burned.
