Armed Poacher Gunned Down in Kenya's Tsavo East National Park

ARMED POACHER GUNNED DOWN IN KENYA’S TSAVO EAST NATIONAL PARK
 

 

An armed poacher hiding at an animal watering point was yesterday shot dead while another is on the run after a shootout in Tsavo East National Park.

Kenya Wildlife Service rangers on a routine foot patrol exchanged fire with the poachers, who were waiting for animals seeking drinking water at the place between Umbi Airstrip and Shimo la Shetani, about 60 km from Ithumba in Kitui District.

A semi automatic G3 rifle, 17 rounds of ammunition, a bicycle, food, a bundle of snares, bows and seven poisoned arrows were recovered in the incident.

The security team has intensified a hunt for the poacher who escaped.  

The suspects are believed to have been involved in other poaching incidents in expansive 11,747 km square Tsavo East National Park lying east of the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.
