In Botswana, Africa, hundreds of elephants have recently been killed. Near the puddle, there was a priceless ivory attached to the dead body of an elephant that fell and died. While authorities are investigating the cause of the death of elephants, some are also likely to die from corona19 infection.
British national animal protection group’National Park Rescue’ said it had found more than 350 carcasses in the Okavango Delta. <비비시>(BBC) BroadcastIt was reported on the 2nd (local time). The elephant carcass was first discovered in early May. “It’s the first time I’ve seen so many elephants lost their lives for unknown reasons at once,” said National Park Director Niall McCann. “We have to figure out what happened.”
Botswana currently has 130,000 elephants, one third of the total African elephant population. Shortly after the incident was announced, the authorities immediately began investigating the cause of the death of the elephant. “The three labs in Zimbabwe, South Africa and Canada are processing samples taken from elephant carcasses,” said the Botswana Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources, Conservation and Tourism. .
Poaching potential has been raised, but for reasons such as the fact that ivory remains in the body of an elephant, poaching is excluded from the cause of the death of the elephant. “It seems that the nervous system of the elephants has been destroyed,” said McCann, who recently saw surviving elephants debilitating and seeing them spinning in circles. In this regard, he said, “If the cause is in water or soil, it may be a cross-border disease.”
