Residents urged to cooperate with KWS

08 September 2014, 09:26 Oduor Omondi

Homa Bay - Residents of Arujo location in Homa Bay sub-county have been asked to cooperate with Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) officials in trapping an unidentified wild animal terrorizing them.

The beast has been killing and injuring their sheep and goats for the last three months.

Speaking to the press, the warden in- charge of wildlife in both Homa Bay and Migori counties, Mary Mayende, revealed that they have laid trap 16 times since the first attack was reported on June 16 but their efforts have not borne any fruits.

Mayende added that they have twice involved the community in trapping the killer animal.

Last Friday, the officer organised a baraza in collaboration with the area chief to sensitise the community to take care of their dogs not to tamper with the baits laid to lure the beast into the trap.

The officer urged the locals to ensure they build strong sheds for their livestock, saying if the beast is trapped, it will be trans-located or eliminated to curb human-wildlife conflict.
