WINDHOEK, Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- More than 400 buffalos drowned Tuesday in the Chobe River at the northern border of Namibia and Botswana.
Namibia's environment spokesperson Romeo Muyunda confirmed the drowning to Xinhua Wednesday.
Chobe River flows through the Chobe National Park that has a considerable population of Cape African buffalo, elephants, sable and giraffe.
Muyunda said some community members from the Kavulvula village in the Mbalasinte area about 130 kilometers from Namibia's northern town of Katima Mulilo found the carcasses.
The spokesperson suspected that the buffalos were running away from some danger when they drowned.
He also said that the villagers in the area had collected the carcasses and would share the meat.
