Crocodile ‘Kills Tourist’ In Zimbabwe

A tourist was attacked and killed by a crocodile while canoeing in an inflatable boat in a national park near Zimbabwe’s second city Bulawayo at the weekend, the country’s state-run Herald newspaper reports.

Another tourist was seriously injured and is intensive care in Bulawayo.

A spokesman for the Matobo National Park, Tinashe Farawo, said the couple had been paddling in the crocodile-infested Mpopoma Dam in the park, which is 22 miles (35km) south of Bulawayo.

He is quoted as saying:

“We encourage our tourists to stay away from wild animals.

“No matter how domesticated they are, they can be dangerous.

“It is unfortunate that they were using air-pumped boats which are not permissible.”
