Memorials in park

JOHANNESBURG — Visitors to South Africa’s biggest game park might see more than wild animals these days. Many people are choosing to scatter the ashes of their loved ones in the reserve, and authorities want to curb the custom.

The South African National Parks department said Wednesday that it is finding urns, caskets, crosses, photographs, small tombstones and other memorials in Kruger National Park. The items are put next to rocks, trees and other places without permission.
