Botswana: Recently, the news of a pregnant elephant being ruthlessly treated in Kerala had upset everyone. One such news about elephants has come from South African country Botswana. The surprising thing is that not one or two here, hundreds of elephants died in mysterious ways.
These elephant deaths occurred in the famous Okavango Delta in Botswana. On Thursday, the Wild Life Department has given this information. Since the teeth of elephants are safe, the authorities have rejected the point of poaching.
Please tell that this southern African country has the largest population of elephants in the world. There are about 1.3 lakh elephants here. Samples of elephants are collected and sent to specialized laboratories in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Canada for testing.
Similar deaths occurred in May for the first time when authorities found 12 bodies of elephants in just one week in two villages in the northwest of the country.
In this case, the latest information has come out that 356 elephants have died here. These figures are from the wildlife conservation charity, Elephants Without Borders (EWB), which he gave in his confidential report. This report was leaked in the media on Wednesday.
The EWB suspects that elephants have been dying in this area for almost three months.
