Nairobi, October 25 - More than 50 elephants have
been killed in the Tsavo nature reserve in Kenya since the
beginning of the year, a report by the Kenya Wildlife Service
said on Thursday.
Park rangers told the Kenyan daily paper the Star that
poachers are becoming ever more sophisticated in their methods,
using poisoned arrows instead of pistols, making it harder for
staff to prevent the killings.
Tsavo Reserve Director Michael Wanjau also said that the
lack of rangers to impede the poachers and protect the elephants
means easier access to the pachiderms.
"Presently we only have 400 rangers in Tsavo that have to
patrol a 22,000 square kilometer territory 22," Wanjau said.
