The possessors of cyanide used to poison elephants in the Tsholotsho region of Zimbabwe had dumped cyanide on a path near Pelandaba Primary School. The dumping occurred a week after the government deadline for its surrender. Since our report last month, some controversy surrounding the number of elephants that had been poisoned has arisen, with figures between 100 and 300 being bandied about. It is reported that the Zimbabwe Police have already arrested nine suspects in this matter.
