The wild animal, identified as a leopard, attacked two people in Sigor area of Chepalungu Constituency. The Kenya Wildlife Service Officers were called in to assess the situation and found that there was nothing to do but out it down.
The animal was shot on the scene and unfortunately died on the spot before it was loaded onto a waiting van for disposal. The locals describe the attack as an unfortunate one.
Wild animal habitat infringement has been on the rise in the country in recent days and this will keep on happening. A few weeks ago, a lion was found hidden between two residential buildings in Rongai.
