(Business in Cameroon) - A group of more than 100 wandering elephants is currently wreaking havoc in the villages of Kaola, Daïba Tiyou and the districts of Yagoua and Wina in Cameroon's Far North region, L'œil du Sahel revealed.

These animals that left the Kalfou forest reserve in search of water, we learn, destroyed cereal fields and crops generally stored in granaries outside huts. Such phenomenon is recurrent in the Far North region, where conflicts between this protected species and humans are permanent.

This worsens the already precarious food situation in this part of the country, due to the advancing desert which has been accelerated in recent years by climate change.
