An investigation into the mysterious deaths of 360 elephants is ongoing, but no cause of death has been determined as of yet.

Some of the mammals’ carcasses have been found in clusters around waterholes, while others have been found flat on their faces, conservationists say.

The situation has been unfolding since May of this year.

Botswana is home to 130,000 African elephants, more than any other country on the continent.
