Three more endangered Borneo pygmy elephants were found dead yesterday in Malaysia of suspected poisoning, wildlife officials said, adding to 10 carcasses discovered earlier this month.
They may have ingested poison spread by oil palm plantations to keep "pests" away, said Laurentius Ambu, wildlife department director of the Malaysian state of Sabah on Borneo island.
He warned that the elephants travel in herds of up to dozens of animals and that still more carcasses could turn up.
