Residents and traders in Tala town, Matungulu sub county of Machakos county have killed a suspected wildcat.

According to residents who spoke to Opera news the animal had entered one shop in the market.

The owner came out screaming and people came to his rescue.

"I asked the woman what's wrong. She told me a cheetah has entered her shop, I was shocked why would the animal be doing in a market. I entered the shop and saw something moving behind the clothes, on checking the animal jumped on me," said a resident.

"I hit it on the head with a club I was holding you can see the blood on my clothes," he added.

Another resident named Ngumbau said that the animal looks like a cheetah but Kenya wildlife service needs to confirm.

He noted that residents living nearby have been complaining of their livestock being attacked and eaten by an unknown animal.

"Last week a farmer lost five sheep and we didn't know what animal had done the deed," he said.

He called on KWS to scour the area and see if there are other such animals remaining.
