L/stone man dies man in elephant attack
AN UNIDENTIFIED man has been killed by an elephant in Livingstone.
According to Zambia Police public relations officer Esther Mwaata Katongo, the victim met his fate between a place known as Dry Manzi and Mukuni village turn-off.
“Police in Livingstone received a report of an elephant attack suspected to have occurred in the early hours of today, 30th September 2019 at unknown time in which an unidentified male victim believed to have been carrying a bag of cabbages was killed by an elephant which is believed to have gone away with the bag of cabbage while other cabbages dropped,” Katongo said.
She said the man’s mutilated body was discovered by members of the public.
Katongo said the body was in Batoka Hospital mortuary.
This is the second death by an elephant this month after a tour guide Chiingi Siavwapa was killed by an elephant as he accompanied a tourist on a bird watching walk.
