Woman and baby were killed by an elephant under the feet of an elephant

A woman and her 3-month-old baby have died after being run over by an elephant in southeast Zimbabwe, the Local National Parks Authority said on Tuesday.

Returning home in rural Chipingi, the 23-year-old met a herd of elephants after visiting relatives in a neighborhood near home with her baby on the New Year’s Eve.

“A villa caught her off guard and attacked her, killing her and her baby,” Zimbabwe Parks and Livestock Administration spokesperson Tinashe Farao told AFP.

The increase in elephant numbers in rural Zimbabwe is leading to clashes between humans and wildlife.
