Poachers massive kill of elephants with cyanide
More than 300 elephants were poisoned by poachers using cyanide in Zimbabwe’s 5,660-square mile Hwange National Park.
Cyanide being a poison, the elephants were not the only victims, directly or indirectly. The elephant carcasses of course became magnets for all kinds of animals.
Conservationists have called this the “worst single animal massacre in southern Africa for 25 years”.
