A 71 years old woman who went missing for almost a week at Samedupe village near Maun was on Sunday found dead after she was trampled to death by an elephant.

Officer Commanding for District No5, Senior Superintendent Peter Gochela, confirmed that the deceased left home to collect firewood on the 11th of February but never returned.

After she was reported missing, police dispatched a search party that found her decomposed body in a nearby bush.

“A pathologist had to be immediately flown from Francistown to Maun to conduct a postmortem on the deceased for her to be buried on the same day,” Gochela revealed.

The postmortem report confirmed that indeed the old woman was attacked and killed by an elephant.

“There are people who say the day the deceased went missing they heard someone screaming from the direction where she was found and we suspect that it was her,” noted Gochela.

The Officer Commanding however expressed disappointment that members of the public these days have lost the spirit of urgently responding to such instances lamenting that had they quickly responded to the deceased’s desperate call for help they could have possibly saved her life.

Regrettably it’s becoming the same the world over. Grandmother is out working while family and neighbors sit on their butts. Nobody cares that she has gone missing! WOW how sad.

Is this in Botswana? I wonder if elephant activity in the area has increased in the last few years

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
