#Regrann @paula_kahumbu : Kayiok Kupese, community ranger injured by a leopard that he was trying to rescue. Our research during the last two weeks has really opened my eyes and broken my heart. I can’t sleep. During the last two weeks I met 4 victims of wildlife injury and received pictures of 5 others. These are their stories Nkini, a 70 year old woman, widow and mother of 8, was tossed by an elephant for no apparent reason. Her buttocks and legs were ripped open. The wounds will not close. She needs operations Her hospital stay will exceed one month and her convalescence will take years. The attack happened in Kuku Conservancy - a property set aside for conservation by the land owners. Kutatai Chacha, about 30 years old, told me that he and two other men were inspecting their boma one morning after a lion attack on the cattle. The lion was still inside, they said they tried to chase it away (though probably they tried to spear it) but didn’t realize that its brother was hiding in the bushes. It lunged and got one man on the back, the other two were bitten on their arms. All are hospitalized. The attack happened in Kuku Conservancy where lion conservation is a major initiative. Kutatai has asked us to install Richard Turere’s lion lights. Five men were savagely mauled by a large leopard ifrom Selenkay conservancy - another major community effort to protect wildlife. The well known leopard named Dume had strayed to a village called Ilolero - it ironically means leopard tree. School children spotted the cat in a tree and alerted adults. A villlagre tried to scare it away but it pounced. He drew his sword to fend it off and injured it. A community scout tried to rescue the leopard which he knew well. It turned on him biting him on the face, others came to help and five people ended up in hospital. The leopard was killed. In addition to these injuries I heard dozens of farmers complain about nightly raids by elephants on their farms.They put their lives at risk to chase elephants when they come - this is how many people die.They are not just numbers. #Kenya must address Human #wildlife ConflictKenya
