"A total of 26 elephant carcasses were found dead on in just two weeks
from cyanide poisoning in Hwange National Park, the largest game reserve
in Zimbabwe. The latest incident, discovered on Tuesday, follows a
poisoning last week that killed 14 elephants. Many of the carcasses were
dismembered, as poachers hurried to remove their valuable tusks before
rangers arrived. According to a park spokesperson, 14 tusks have been
recovered. Police have made no arrests so far."
Truly tragic. A slow-motion catastrophe.
