Residents of Kapchemutwo and Emsoo villages in Elgeyo Marakwet have been living in fear following increased attacks targeting their dairy cattles. According to villagers, unknown people have been cutting off their animal's body parts leaving the animal to die.
The perpetrators have been targeting exotic dairy breeds such as Freshian and Ayrshire. They first sedate the animal before cutting off the animal's udder, reproductive area, and tongue. It's still unclear where they usually take the cuttings.
However initial reports have indicated that the animals are being targeted for witchcraft purposes by unknown people. The attackers are only interested in the exotic breed and not the indigenous type.
Over six animals have been killed in the last few months prompting the residents to hold a meeting to try and find a solution. Many have resorted to selling the animals in order to avoid future losses.
Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
