Zimparks Kill Elephant For Terrorizing Vic Falls Residents

The Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (Zimparks) has gunned down a bull elephant which has been terrorising residents of Mfelandwonye Suburb in Victoria Falls.

The rogue jumbo was killed over the weekend after it had seemingly joined police officers to enforce the national lockdown, with residents in the resort town staying indoors, fearful of the animal.

Zimparks spokesperson Tinashe Farawo said the elephant was killed after it started to barge into people’s homes and destroying their property. Said Farawo:

Our officers in Victoria Falls had to put down the problem animal. Over the last month, our rangers were deployed to scare the animal without success and we took the decision to eliminate the animal in order to protect the residents.

Following the killing of the animal, residents of Mfelandawonye Suburb flocked to the carcass to get free game meat.

Their only request was that the government assist them with mealie meal and cooking oil to go along with the free delicacy.

  1. This says it happened in Zimbabwe. It would be an African elephant.
    Clearly, this picture shows an Asian elephant.

  2. When I think of all the years of protesting around the world to rid the African countries of despots and dictators. All the embargoes of fruit, vegetables and other products in order to bring freedom. And now that has happened we find the creatures of these African countries haven’t benefited one iota.
    The indigenous peoples are still killing these beautiful endangered animals as if nothing had happened after all these years.
    For me and many others it’s back to square one again and boycotts of South Africa and other African countries. Have the people who suffered decades if not centuries of slavery and mistreatment learned nothing?
    Are we to witness the extinction of elephants and rhinos under the rule of natural African people?
