Jumbos terrorize residents

30 November 2012, 08:59 James Kabotia

Residents of Tigithi Division in Laikipia Central District were Wednesday terrorized by an elephant which also killed a cow and a goat.

According to Tigithi ward councilor Maina Ndegwa, the jumbo believed to have strayed from Mt Kenya forest created tension in the area as people remained indoors because of fear.

Speaking to media on phone, Laikipia East KWS Senior Warden Dickson Too said that people have settled on wildlife corridors and were thus  bound to witness such scenarios.

“Residents should be vigilant so as to avoid attacks by wild animals,” he cautioned.

He added that human beings are the ones who settled where the wild animals used to pass many years ago, and that such attacks are not unique.

This comes at a time when KWS in conjunction with other partners in conservation are holding wildlife census in Laikipia, Samburu, Isiolo and Marsabit ecosystems.

This exercise is aimed towards establishing the number of large and endangered animals such as elephants, grevy zebras among others in the region.

Such exercise was last conducted in the year 2008.
