Zimbabwe | Severe drought claims 55 elephants in Hwange NP

HARARE (Reuters) - At least 55 elephants have died in a game park in western Zimbabwe since September from starvation caused by a severe drought, the wildlife agency said on Monday.

Zimparks spokesman Tinashe Farawo said the animals had died near water holes dotted around the Hwange National Park, a sign that they had traveled long distances to access water.
