Zimbabwe drought: Hundreds of animals die in national park

Park officials say they plan to move some to areas where there is still food and water but that could take weeks.

Zimbabwe is experiencing its worst drought in years.

Rangers in Zimbabwe say hundreds of animals in its national park have died from a severe drought and many are struggling to survive.

Predators and scavengers seem to be thriving in these harsh conditions because the more animals that die, the more food they have.
