KNP Elephant trampled a local resident.
Kruger National Park (KNP) rangers discovered a lifeless human body, of a local resident from Mabilingwe, a village south of Punda Maria Gate on Saturday, 13 August 2016 at around 13:30.
The body was discovered after Rangers on patrol saw a man walking along the park’s boundary and upon being questioned; the man indicated he was looking for an old man who disappeared from the village a day before. Rangers immediately went on a search and eventually found the body, with signs that it was trampled by an elephant. The case was referred to the Police for further investigation.
“On behalf of South African National Parks (SANParks) Management and Staff, we wish to express our sincere condolences to the family for the loss of their loved one. Lives have been unnecessarily lost to wild animals in the Park due to people not taking the necessary precautions. We would like to urge families from the local communities to look after their loved ones; in particular the senior citizens or the mentally distressed as it is possible for them to wander and disappear into the Park which is dangerous, said the Acting Head of Communications, Mr William Mabasa.
