HotCold Take: Elephants Killing People Because You Ate A Burger

Yup, your fault

Climate change: Elephants killing and injuring people due to drought

Elephants in Zambia are being collared to try to combat the rising conflict between wildlife and humans in the country as both struggle to survive a particularly devasting drought.

The lack of rain has led to animals encroaching on to human territory to seek out food and water.

Elephants have been trampling crops, tearing down fences, terrifying residents and even injuring and killing them.

But they are not the only wildlife problem. Crocodiles are lunging at people as both man and beast fight over the meagre amounts of water found in the bush.

And we spotted a hippo wandering around one of Livingstone’s main roads – for hours. Hippos are among the most dangerous animals in Africa, killing several hundred people per year.

See, droughts never happened prior to the fossil fueled engine. And you eating that delicious burger for lunch.

We could fix this all with a tax, though.
