Tanzanian woman killed by marauding elephants
DAR ES SALAAM: Tanzanian police said on Tuesday that a 43-year-old woman was killed by marauding elephants in a village in the country’s north-western region of Kagera.
Revocatus Malimi, Kagera regional police commander, said the elephants attacked and killed the woman at around 10 p.m. Monday when she was on her way to visit the neighbours.
According to him, villagers tried to make noise to drive off the elephants. It is unknown how many stray elephants were involved because the accident happened at night.
Elephant and rhino populations in Tanzania began to rebound after a government crackdown beginning in 2016 dismantled multiple poaching syndicates.
In recent years, incidents of stray elephants killing villagers and destroying farm crops in Tanzania are on the rise despite government efforts to control the animals. (Xinhua)
