44

Marauding hyenas over the weekend attacked a 10 year-old boy in Kasungu district, leaving him with deep cuts.

According to Kasungu Deputy Police Publicist Harry Namwaza, on Sunday afternoon the boy went to play football in Kabamila village in the district.

But while going back home with his friends, they met the wild animals and the boys started to run away.

HyenaWhile running, the victim fell down and the animals attacked him.

“Lucky enough, the houses are not far from the spot where the boy was being attacked which gave the victim a chance to be rescued by the villagers upon hearing the message of his attack from his friends,” said Namwaza.

The boy suffered a deep cut in the head, chest and buttocks where the teeth of the hyenas who were scrambling for his body got deep into his fresh.

The victim was admitted at Kasungu District Hospital and his condition is said to be improving.

The incident happened barely a week after a 65-year-old man was also attacked by the hyenas.

Police in Kasungu have since asked the Department of Parks and Wildlife to help get rid of hyenas that are terrorising Traditional Authority (T/A) Wimbe’s area.
