Some 60 Hippos Die
Mysteriously in Uganda
KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) - Some 60 hippos have died from an unknown cause in the past two months in one of Uganda's national parks, an official said Tuesday.
Preliminary analysis by scientists from the state-run Makerere University suggests the dead hippos did not have a viral infection, said John Bosco Nuwe, the chief warden of Queen Elizabeth National Park where the deaths occurred.
"The animals just fall down and die," Nuwe told The Associated Press. "Veterinary doctors are working out the cause of the deaths of these hippos. Saliva oozes out from the sick and dead ones."
Queen Elizabeth National Park, about 205 miles west of the capital Kampala, is home to about half of the estimated 10,000 hippos in Uganda. The park is Uganda's second largest.
