The Kariba Animal Welfare Fund said last week that poaching activities threatened to decimate entire herds of buffalo, waterbuck, impala and zebra in the once wildlife-rich national park.
It said a recent operation by a combined tracking team comprising members of the fund and Parks and Wildlife Management Authority rangers recovered at least 40 snares planted by poachers in the Nyanyana section of the national park. Several impala carcasses were also found.
Another sweep retrieved 21 snares in the Quarry area, together with carcasses of a zebra and a buffalo.
