Ethiopia | Poachers kill 6 elephants near Mago NP
A total of six elephants were killed in a single day near Mago National Park in south-western Ethiopia. Park officials attribute this massacre to poachers who are not new to the region.
While Ethiopia’s elephant population is declining dramatically, a slaughter has just been recorded in the south-west of the country, near Mago National Park. A total of six elephants were slaughtered in a single day. According to the authorities, the large mammals have moved away from the park in search of a watering hole. That’s when they crossed paths with the poachers.
