Local hunters in Ogun State, Nigeria, have shown their prowess in the field, as this is the fourth elephant killed in the state in the last two years.
What could appear to local hunters as good news isn’t always good news for the Elephant Protection Initiative. They have even spoken out about the forced killing of animals in the park.
According to the Elephant Protection Initiative, this is the fourth elephant killed in Ogun state in the last two years.
They said, “Sharing pictures of the animal killed near Omo forest,”
“Sad. Near Omo Forest, Ogun, not far from Lagos, 4th elephant illegally shot dead in 2 yrs. #Nigeria’s few elephants – c400- fast disappearing. (Elephant shot by local hunter- those in pic not responsible)”
