A herd of elephants have been spotted in the Upper West Region crossing the Bolgatanga-Bawku road after they reportedly migrated from Ghana over the last two decades.
According to a narration sighted by Briefly News on the Twitter handle of @Ghanaspotlight, it is indicated that in Ghana, the elephants normally migrate along with the Red and White Voltas, as well as the Morgan and Sisily river corridors.
However, from 2005 to 2012, the wild mammals left the shores of Ghana and have not been seen all through the ages until now that they are making their heavy comeback.
See the video below:
Social media users who were utterly amazed by the report have been sharing their views.
Some of them have been put together below:
So it wasn't just the Guinea fowls that flew into Burkina but elephants too? Then the Guinea fowls will also return someday.
@SuziFabLane prayed for the big mammals.
God please protect them from poachers and anything else that may harm them
@Kofi882 expressed his hope that the current NPP government will pick up its game as their totem is back in Ghana
I hope the NPP implement Better policies since their totems are back
In another shocking report, a rare breed of a dog that has the ability to sing by producing harmonic sounds has been rediscovered after 50 years of being presumed extinct.
The dogs, commonly known as the New Guinea singing dogs, were last seen in 1970 and scientists thought they were extinct until 2016 when some breeds that exhibited similar characteristics were spotted on remote Papua highlands in Indonesia.
According to CNN, the researchers studied their DNA but had not come to a proper conclusion until 2018 when a new team went back to the highlands and collected fresh biological samples of the wild dogs.
