What Happens When an Elephant Dies in Zimbabwe

In Gonarezhou National Park, Zimbabwe local villagers fall upon the body of a dead elephant, starved of meat they reduce the huge carcass to bones in under 2 hours.

24 hours later the bones have also gone, all that's visible are the fresh tracks from the remaining elephants returning to Mozambique under cover of darkness.

They'd better hope that elephant died of natural causes and not disease.
