Rangers removing tusks of an elephant with Anthrax
On the 10th of March we arrived at a very fresh dead elephant near Military Bush inside MNC. The elephant was not bleeding from its trunk, mouth, or ears and had a fetid wound on its back so we assumed it died from poison arrow. 5 days later two of our rangers whom removed the tusks contracted anthrax. They are now much better but we expect that their may be some dormant spores around the site where the elephant died.
