Mass death of Elephant in Africa in mysterious causes

Mass death of Elephant in Africa in mysterious causes

By Adnan Mahfuz

Over the last two months, hundreds of elephants have died in Botswana, an African country, due to mysterious reasons. The mass killing of elephants there is unprecedented, with those concerned saying it has never happened before. This information was given in a report of the international media BBC on Wednesday.

Since the beginning of May in Botswana, people have reported that they have seen more than 350 carcasses on the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana.

But no one knows why so many elephants are dying. In the meantime, samples have been collected from the bodies of dead elephants. It will take a few more weeks for the results to come.

The world media says that the number of elephants in Africa is decreasing day by day. Botswana is home to one-third of the continent’s elephants. At first, the elephants were noticed to be dying in the mass, in this context.



Nayal McCann said to the BBC’s local conservationists to alert the government about this after visiting Okavango by plane in May. ‘Just three hours into the flight, they saw the carcasses of 169 elephants.

It is unusual to see so many dead elephants in such a short time. A month later, some more elephant carcasses were found. In all, the number is more than 350.

The death of so many elephants in a single event not related to drought is unprecedented. Only elephants are dying. ‘In May, Botswana’s government confirmed that poachers were not behind the deaths of so many elephants.

Because, in that case, the dead elephants did not have teeth. They kill elephants out of greed for these precious teeth.

Dr. Niall McCann said many feel they have a nervous breakdown. Maybe something is attacking their nervous system. Botswana Wildlife and National Parks Department Director, Cyril Taolo said they have so far confirmed the deaths of at least 280 elephants.

They said they still did not know why so many elephants were dying.
