Angry residents killed six lions that had mauled 28 livestock in Kitengela, Kajiado County on the outskirts of Kenya’s capital Nairobi.
The beasts had strayed from the Nairobi National Park and entered a pen where the sheep and goats were locked for the night at Elkeek-Lemedungi Village early Wednesday.
The animals killed the livestock at around 1am (+3GMT) before the agitated herders speared the lions to death.
The owner raised the alarm and locals surrounded the home. However, two of the lions managed to escape.
One person was injured after a lion bit him in the arm. The locals kept vigil for about five hours to ensure none of the cats fled.
