Received 26th Feb afternoon
Suyian is covered in thousands of cattle belonging to Maasai,Pokot and Samburu..there are also large numbers of sheep and goats in the river valley. The grass is running low now but there is still water in the river. We are having to move our own cattle closer to Ranch HQ as illegal grazers close in on our last area of grazing for our own cattle. The killing of wildlife continues on a daily basis most of the carcasses are either intact or a small piece of meat taken off or skin. The lack of wildife in our core area which is about 8,000 acres is really serious.We have never experienced such horrific and stressful times for wildlife,environment,and Suyian Ranch staff.We never know what will happen next.One of our top cattle herders was murdered in his house at night 3 days ago for no reason at all.
