Hundreds Of Elephants Die Under Mystery Circumstances
MORE THAN 360 ELEPHANTS DIE IN MYSTERIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES IN BOTSWANA
(CNN) – More than 360 elephants have died under mysterious circumstances in Botswana in the past three months.
The Botswana government is testing samples from the dead elephants, but they have yet to determine a cause of death.
Last year, Botswana scrapped an elephant hunting ban it had in place since 2014, sparking international outcry.
Conservationists said poaching could not be ruled out, although the tusks were still on the elephants.
