Grief as pupil is killed by stray buffalo on New Year's eve

02 January 2016, 07:53

Naivasha - A family in Naivasha's Karasani Estate is mourning after their son was killed by a stray buffalo on Thursday.

According to Naivasha OCPD, Titus Munyoki, the primary school pupil was cornered by the wild animal on his way to meet his father at the shopping center.

Speaking Friday, Munyoki said that the animal had strayed from the nearby reserve in search of pasture.

"The boy was walking along the road when the buffalo attacked him, killed him. He screamed for help but the people who came to rescue him found him dead already," said Munyoki.

Munyoki added that in the past year, they have recorded five cases of people being killed by stray wild animals.

"There are so many reserves here and so many dangerous animals stray out of the parks and end up killing people. The most common cases involve hippos, hyenas, cheetahs and buffaloes," he said.

Munyoki called on the Kenya Wildlife Service to step in and ensure all the animals are restrained within their reserves.
