An 80 year old woman was on Saturday evening killed by hyena in Taita taveta County.

The woman known as Christine was preparing supper when the hyena invaded her home at Kajire village in Voi.

Her efforts to tackle the situation failed and the hungry hyena killed her.

Another woman was seriously injured by the hyena and is currently recuperating at the Moi referral hospital in Voi.

Locals however attacked and killed the wild animal.

They blamed Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) for ignoring them despite several complaints.

“This is not the first time we are encountering such inhuman incident caused by wild animals,” reiterated a resident David Mkala.

They called on KWS to act and quell the human-wildlife conflict in the area.
