It was yet another tiring day for the Guardians, working in the scorching sun fencing bomas. A hyena has attacked in the same area again, killing one sheep. The community was very angry and told us that they wanted to kill the hyena, and that they did not want us to work on their boma to make it stronger. There were also reports that a leopard was in the area, which jumped over a boma fence, and killed a goat too. Here I am with Lenkina, pulling branches to the boma.
After some discussions, the livestock owner allowed us to try again to strengthen the fence where the hyena broke through, and we did our best to make it as solid and strong as we could. Our fingers are crossed as we wait out another long night of uneasiness with the community. This may be the last chance for the hyena now. It sounds like the community will not tolerate any more livestock attacks from it. Mokoi helps byÂ dragging branches to add to the fence.
