Botswana: Department Issues Elephant Warning

Gaborone — The public is advised to be vigilant and extra cautious following the spotting of five elephants roaming in the Southern District at Moatle and Mosepele between Kanye and Jwaneng.

A press release from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks warns the public not to use herding dogs and rifles in an attempt to scare them away or make any form of noise as these will agitate and make them dangerous to their lives.

Any sightings of these elephants or anything suspected to be such animals should be reported to the nearest wildlife offices at 5441250 (Kanye) and 5889244 (Mabutsane) as well as police at 999 or any government offices in the district.
