Vihiga - Students and teachers of Chavakali National School in Vihiga County have been left in panic mode after an unknown animal attached and killed six sheep in the school compound at night.
The wild animal is suspected to have sneaked into the animals’ enclosure late into the night and killed the sheep, leaving them on the ground without having bothered to carry them away.

“Yesterday we got six sheep dead in the morning. Most of them had severe injuries and had only been killed and left on the ground,” Job Mugevi, the deputy principal of the school said.
Mugevi said that one of the killed sheep, was eaten and only the head left with the five others remaining intact.
“We have reported the matter to the relevant authorities and we hope that the Kenya Wildlife Society will step in and help solve the mystery as this is a school where we have many students and who read through the night,” said Mugevi.
The school’s farm manager Mr George Muhando said that it was the first time they were experiencing such in the school for many years and asked for quick action to be taken by the security agencies in the region.
“The animal may come again to attack, since it has already succeeded in its first bout,” he said.
