"Drought-Hit Zimbabwe Sells Off Wild Animals"

"Zimbabwe put its wild animals up for sale on Tuesday, saying it needed buyers to step in and save the beasts from a devastating drought.

Members of the public 'with the capacity to acquire and manage wildlife' - and enough land to hold the animals - should get in touch to register an interest, the state Parks and Wildlife Management Authority said.

There were no details on the animals on offer or their cost, but the southern African country's 10 national parks are famed for their huge populations of elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards and buffalos."
