“One of the elephants, which had a calf, charged against Maocha and trampled on him to his death,’’ she said.

In his words, Nombo Sandari, a ranger with Chingoli Wildlife Management Area also said: “Before his death, the deceased screamed to seek support from neighbouring farmers but in vain as nobody came out to rescue him.’’

He added that the elephant strayed from Selous Game Reserve seeking for pastures and water.

Limbega Ally, Tunduru District Acting Wildlife Officer said: “we’ve dispatched a team of 11 rangers into the affected areas to help return all the elephants to their natural environment.’’

It would be recalled that another farmer was trampled to death by a herd of marauding elephants in the same district In 2017.
