A man from the Halugho area, Ijara Sub-County is demanding justice after a buffalo attacked and ripped off his manhood.

The 54-year-old man was attacked by the animal, on Wednesday morning, while herding his goats.

It is said that upon coming in contact with him, the wild animal charged and attacked him ripping off his genitalia.

Following the incident, the victim is now asking Kenya Wildlife Service to compensate him for the injuries caused by the buffalo.

As he recuperates at the Garissa County Referral Hospital, KWS, through their human-wildlife conflict affairs officer, Grace Nzale, said that they will investigate the incident and react appropriately.

The incident comes two days after a 26-year-old man from the same area was also attacked by two hippos.

The victim was reportedly attacked by the hippos on Monday at a community water point where he had taken his cattle.

“Mahat Miskok Adat was attacked by the hippos at around 10:00 am in the morning at the water point where he had taken his cattle to drink water,” area chief Farha Ethow Siyat said.

The animals reportedly bit Adat on the back before they dragged him on the ground with their teeth latched in his body.

His relatives have also filed a complaint with the KWS seeking compensation for the damages.
