10 Elephants poisoned with cyanide around Hwange National Park

At least 10 elephants have been killed by poachers through the use of cyanide poison around Hwange National Park. Among the ten, there is a cow and her calf. when some of the elephants were discovered, poachers had already hacked the tusks off 4 of the elephants.

Trevor Lane from the Bhejane Trust, an organisation which is into conserving wildlife said:

Parks went out there quickly and energetically and I am sure they will make progress and produce results as they are very determined. The poachers left buckets with cyanide mixed with salt which have been recovered. We know some vultures will have been poisoned as well, but we are not yet sure how many

We should expect more poaching this year because people are so poor in this bad economic situation.
