KWS shoots dead hippo that killed Chinese tourist in Lake Naivasha

So sad

Hell’s Gate Park warden Nelson Cheruiyot confirmed the killing of the hippo which was being hunted down after attacking the man.

According to witnesses on the ground, the man got too close to the hippo while taking a photograph.

The 66-year-old was rushed to Naivasha sub-county hospital in a critical state as he was bleeding profusely.

"We are saddened by the reaction of KWS officers who acted swiftly when a Chinese was killed but were silent when a local was involved,” David Kilo, chairman Lake Naivasha Boat Owners Association.
