Nakuru - A middle aged man was Wednesday killed by a stray buffalo at Lake Nakuru National Park.
The man who was identified as Peter Nyutu, a 34-year-old casual labourer who had gone to fetch water for construction of a site when he met his death.
Two Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) rangers who were guarding the labourers were forced to scarper for their lives when they saw the buffalo attack the man.
According to one of the rangers who spoke to the media on condition of anonymity, the buffalo came running from the bush and hit the man to the ground.
“Buffaloes are normally angry wild animals because it came running after us but instead hit the man,” said the ranger.
The casual labourer was gorged twice on his chest by the buffalo.
The father of two daughters was pronounced dead upon arrival at Nakuru Provincial General Hospital.
