Eleven elephants were on Friday found dead in Pandamasue Forest in a suspected case of anthrax, the Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority has said.

Zimparks spokesperson Tinashe Farawo said the authority was conducting investigations to determine the cause of death of the elephants.

“The elephants were found dead in Pandamasue Forest. Zimparks suspects anthrax. Veterinary doctors are on the ground. We are waiting for results from the laboratory,” he said.

Neighbouring Botswana recently lost about 400 elephants in mysterious circumstances.

Last year, at least 200 elephants died in Hwange National Park due to a severe drought.
