Mother And Baby Trampled To Death By Elephant

Mother And Baby Trampled To Death By Elephant

A mother and her six-month-old baby were both trampled to death by a stray elephant on New Year’s Day in Kushinga B village under Chief Musikavanhu, Chipinge, police have confirmed.

Shylet Muyambo (22) and her baby girl died on the spot when an elephant that was part of a herd charged and trampled them.

Police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Wiseman Chinyoka said Muyambo was coming from her sister Charity Muyambo’s (25) homestead in the same village, at around 6 PM when she was attacked by the jumbo. Said Chinyoka:

It is unfortunate that a Chipinge woman and her three months old child were trampled to death by an elephant on New Year.

The woman had visited her relatives in the neighbouring community and she was on her way back when she met the herd of elephants and was attacked by one, which killed her on the spot together with her baby.

Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (Zimparks) spokesperson Tinashe Farawo also confirmed the incident. Farawo said:

It is unfortunate that a Chipinge woman and her three months old child were trampled to death by an elephant on New Year.

The woman had visited her relatives in the neighbouring community and she was on her way back when she met the herd of elephants and was attacked by one, which killed her on the spot together with her baby.

Farawo said the killer elephant had since been put down.

Its high time Zim considers moving these animals from peoples neighbourhoods to more safe gameparks.we could also consifer selling them to China since its a ready market for the beasts.
