Kruger Park on alert after TB claims life of an elephant
Concerns abound that elephants at the Kruger National Park were at the risk of human-borne tuberculosis after one was killed by the disease.
To eliminate the fears, scientists at the country’s main national park were conducting tests on the animals.
On Wednesday, a team led by Professor Michele Miller from Stellenbosch University conducted tests on a young elephant.
Miller said they were hoping to sporadically test between 60 and 70 elephants in the park.
