For us it is a saddening sight - a magnificent bull elephant struck down in his old age. But for the starving of Zimbabwe, it was little short of a miracle.
The carcass provided a vital source of food, and hundreds of desperate villagers in the Gonarezhou National Park descended on the dead animal within minutes of its discovery.
Using machetes, axes and knives made from tin cans they set upon the six-ton carcass, which was found deep in scrubland.

Thank goodness those white devils are gone.
Coming to post-Obama hyperinflation America . . .
Yeah, and soon the Chinese will be taking over.
Yeah, and to think his cousin, Obamugabe is now leading the US down the same road to collapse. Will we stand by and let this tyrant destroy us?
These people are much better off now that they have driven out the Whites.
It won’t be elephants, it’ll be RINO’s
People will keep watching ball games and reality TV until the end. You cable and sat TV bill are your ticket to slavery.
I don’t think I could stomach Pansey Graham’s carcass, starving or not. :(
Back when it was called “Rhodesia”, they actually exported food.
Gee, how much blame for this situation is being admitted by the western liberals who helped overthrow Rhodesia? It’s all on them.
In the fwiw department, ten years ago, on this very forum, I predicted Zim would go from a net food exporter to a net food importer, and that they would be starving by this time.
I really do hate when I'm right.
Just wait till next round of tax hikes hit...
Starting in 1979, the redistribution there was called "Land Reform". The idea was to take land that rich land owners held for generations and redistribute it among the poor. The result: what was once known as the "breadbasket of Africa" was transformed into an economic basket case ruled by an oligarch. A country that at one time could feed much of Africa is now having a hard time feeding even itself.
Good, why let it go to waste (or feed the vultures)
This is nothing new. Elephants hunters for decades have taken the tusks as trophies and let the nearest village have the carcas.
I am not suprised that a western urbanite reporter was shocked to discover that animals are made of meat.
The title is a take-off from a forgettable book with an unforgettable name:
Never had cable. I am disgusted by most of what I briefly view on TV. Sitcoms are mostly the marketing of deviance as are several other shows on TV. Hollywood writers are clearly without morals and have a perverted view of the world and what passes as entertainment.
africans have a knack for destroying economies. See african continent for examples.
