192 Elephant Carcasses found in Maasai Mara

The World Wide Fund for Nature has raised the red-flag after 192 elephant carcasses were found in the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem during an aerial survey.
Of the carcasses with no tusks, 117 are on the Kenyan side while 75 in Tanzania.
Robert Ndetei from WWF said 84 per cent of the carcasses were outside the Masai Mara Game Reserve.
"An aerial report released on Thursday in Arusha has revealed a worrying number of elephant carcasses in the world famous Mara-Serengeti ecosystem," he said in Naivasha yesterday.

This makes me Question the KWS figures quoted only a couple of weeks ago - see "Kenya Poaching Figures", published on 15th August, below.
