JOHANNESBURG: An elephant has trampled a suspected poacher to death in South Africa’s famed Kruger National Park, a spokesman said on Friday.
The mangled body was discovered Thursday during an intelligence operation aimed at preventing poaching, Kruger spokesman Isaac Phaahla told AFP.
But before any animals were harmed, an elephant stomped one poacher to death while the others fled, Phaahla said.
“Initial investigations suspect that the deceased was killed by an elephant and left behind by his accomplices,” he added.
