TWELVE elephants in KwaZulu-Natal that were to have been shot have been reprieved and will be moved a wildlife sanctuary in Limpopo, Animal Rights Africa said today. Due to a successful land restitution claim, the entire Thukela Biosphere Reserve, near Weenen, now has new owners who do not want the elephants on their newly returned land. The elephants, orphaned by culling in the Kruger National Park, were taken to Thukela Biosphere Reserve in the early 1990s.
