Two arrested for poisoning 8 lions in Maasai Mara

08 December 2015, 14:35 Zainabu Dena

Narok - Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) officers in Narok County have arrested two suspects in connection with the poisoning of eight lions at the famous Maasai Mara game reserve on Sunday.

Narok County KWS Senior Warden, Collins Omondi said the two are helping the police with investigation into an incident where some Maasai herders gave the pride of lions meat laced with poison.

Omondi said the herders who were grazing their animals in the Game Reserve were apparently annoyed after the lions grabbed three of their cows and decided to poison them with the leftovers.

“This is a very unfortunate and sad incident and we are carrying out investigations in order to ensure all those involved are brought to book,” KWS Senior Warden said.

He added that the law was clear on what the herders should do if they felt aggrieved by the big cats or any other wild animal, noting that they should have filed a case for compensation instead of taking the law into their hands by killing the animals.

Omondi said the Veterinary Department at KWS was carrying out postmortem to establish the nature of poison given to the lions.

He at the same time called on Narok County Government to invoke their by-laws and ban grazing of livestock in the Game Reserve.

Omondi said the suspects will be arraigned in court and charged with poisoning wildlife and illegal entry into the park among other charges.
