KWS rule out foul play in elephant's death in Laikipia

10 September 2014, 13:10 Kelvin Wanjohi

Nyahururu - Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) have ruled out foul play in the death of an elephant near Nyahururu town over the weekend.

The officer in charge of the KWS office in Nyahururu town, Wellington Gathungu, said the animal died of natural causes despite reports that it had been poisoned by farmers who have suffered great losses because the animals have been invading their farms near the forest.

People who were on their way to the South Marmanet forest next to KWS offices found the carcass of the elephant and alerted the rangers who came and took away the tusks.

Gathungu said preliminary investigation did not show that the animal was poisoned as speculated by the residents, adding that plans are underway to dispose of the carcass to prevent it from becoming a health hazard.

By Tuesday, the foul smell from the decomposing carcass was reaching people living about one kilometre away on the windward side of the forest.
