    [FONT=&quot]Four suspected poachers were arrested in Ngorongoro Conservation Area for allegedly plotting to kill elephants using poisoned pumpkins and watermelons, a tactic increasingly employed by poachers in East Africa with deadly effect.[/FONT]
    To people who rejoice with consuming healthy food, water melons are of high nutritional value. Likewise in the wild water melons and pumpkins are delicacies to some wild animals especially elephants. The problem now is that poachers are using both to lure and deplete elephants. A water melon laced with poison is capable of killing an elephant within minutes.[/FONT]
