Kenya begins relocating 200 elephants by truck

Kenyan authorities in the area of Narok have begun moving up to 200 elephants by truck to a new home in the Masai Mara reserve some 150km away.

Wheat growing has eaten into the elephants' natural habitat, and the animals have caused increasing destruction to crops - and human life - in their search for food and water.

Heather Sharp reports.
