The authorities found elephants in the forest of Pandamasue in western Zimbabwe this Friday, as reported by the administrative authority for national parks and wildlife of the African country (Zimparks).
Agency spokesman Tinashe Farawo said investigations are still ongoing to determine the cause of elephant death in a forest between Hwange and Victoria Falls.
“The elephants were found dead in the pandamasue forest. Zimparks suspect anthrax. Vets are on site. We are waiting for the results of the laboratory,” Farawo told the official Chinese news agency Xinhua.
Neighboring Botswana recently lost hundreds of elephants under mysterious circumstances.
Last year at least 200 elephants died in Zimbabwe’s largest game reserve, Hwange National Park, as a result of the drought.
