Another killer elephant wanted in South Africa

It is already for more than a week that a search for a killer elephant has been in progress in the Northern Province of the Republic of South Africa. The elephant is reported to have trampled to death a young peasant woman. The case can be considered a commonplace in many African countries, though. Vast areas have been turned there into various-kind natural reserves and hunting grounds, both state-owned and private. Normally, those areas are not fenced, so the animals can easily travel to and fro, according to RIA Novosti news agency. Cases of lions and leopards assaulting herds of cows and goats are regularly recorded, to say nothing of continuous incursions by monkeys, elephants and buffaloes of sown fields. South-African professional hunters from the near-by Krueger Park are assigned to kill the above elephant, because any animal, having killed a man, is believed to pose a heightened threat to people. A month ago, another elephant, under similar circumstances, had trampled a man in the area of the Limpopo river, on the border with Zimbabwe. It had taken 2 days to trace and bust the killer animal then.
