Okavango Elephants death toll rise to 44
The death toll in the Okavango Panhandle elephants has risen to 44.
Yesterday 36 carcasses were counted from which 14 carcasses were discovered 40 kilometres from Seronga catchment villages, the epicentre of all carcasses discoveries so far.
Today 8 new discoveries were made taking the overall count to 44 elephants. The count is still ongoing.
According to Department of Wildlife and National Parks, the elephants are dying from 'unknown causes'. There has been speculation that the cause of death could be poisoning or anthrax. But some experts have ruled anthrax out.
Regional wildlife coordinator, Dimakatso Ntshebe today stated that postmortem results are expected soon but did not give the exact date.
Ntshebe said the deaths are caused by an unknown pathogen. " Its doubtful if the elephants have been poisoned. Because if its poisoning it would affect other species in the area not just elephants. The poison would kill scanvengers like jackals and others which are feeding on carcasses. However we are not ruling anything out until the results are out' he said
DWNP reiterated its plea to members of the public not to eat meat from the carcasses as the cause of death is unknown and potentially a health hazard.
