Hyenas are causing havoc and attacking people in Zaka, Zaka District Administrator Ndeya Nyede has confirmed.
Several people were attacked in Chief Bota and Chief Ndanga’s areas and one person had to be rushed to seek treatment at the local clinic.
The marauding hyenas are believed to be coming from the surrounding mountains.
“We received a case which happened last week on Sunday at Nyamwa Village under Headman Mutinwi in Chief Ndanga’s area where a dead hyena was discovered and people gathered around it. While they were there another hyena came and started fighting villagers but they managed to kill it,” said Nyede.
