Natural toxins likely killed hundreds of Botswana elephants: Govt
Hundreds of elephants that died mysteriously in Botswana's famed Okavango Delta probably succumbed to natural toxins, the wildlife department said Friday.
The landlocked southern African country has the world's largest elephant population, estimated to be around 130,000. Around 300 of them have been found dying since March.
Authorities have so far ruled out anthrax, as well as poaching, as the tusks were found intact.
