CBS publicized efforts to save African elephants from terrorist-funding poachers; ABC's America Strong series publicized those to save dogs from violent criminals. ABC's Gio Benitez brought us Sandy Marsault of Vested Interest in Canines, the Massachusetts charity that provides bulletproof vests to police dogs, at $950 apiece. CBS' Barry Petersen brought us the rockcrusher that turned six tons of ivory, confiscated over the past 25 years, into gravel. Petersen did not explain how the symbolic step of eliminating so much ivory would make the $1,000-a-pound black market less -- not more -- lucrative for poachers.
