Hyena’s exhume and feast on 19 bodies in Naivasha

Hyenas believed to have strayed away from Long'onot Park in Naivasha have shocked many villagers after they exhumed and fed on 19 bodies at a nearby cemetery.

 

The residents say that this happened on Monday early morning before the villagers had woken up. They now blame the grave-diggers for digging shallow graves and the undertakers who are never around to keep an eye at the graveyard.

“These bodies were buried recently but the people only dug the grave to four and half feet,” said a resident.

This has been the case for a while now since most graves are dug by drunken men who often carry out this activity at night as reported by Citizen digital. One resident revealed that the intoxicated men prefer doing this at night to avoid paying taxes.

“These men come at night and just dig the graves yet we have paid taxes to have the cemetery attended to. But a few people act irresponsibly and cause us all distress.”

The hyenas sometimes end up carrying body parts to the nearby villages. The Villagers are now pleading the government to relocate the graveyard as they fear worse things might happen.

“The wild animals carried away parts of the bodies some of which were spotted near homesteads. We want the county government to relocate this cemetery” said one of the village elders

So far the villagers have noticed that the remains dumped by the Hyena’s are being feasted by dogs and chickens which could easily lead to a disease out break.
