Just received from Ole Naishu –
What little grass remains on Ole Naishu is rapidly being depleted by the remaining cattle and in particular large flocks of sheep illegally grazing. We still have numbers of cattle from Isiolo County, identifiable by the yellow tags (starting 009, 010 and 012) as in the images below. Approximately 500 head of cattle and 300 sheep were detained on the ranch today. A few opportunistic neighbours from the Grattan area have used the opportunity to cut cedar and poach with spears and torches at night knowing that we are absorbed tackling livestock. A patrol last night recovered a spear, axes and wedges used for splitting cedar but unfortunately the perpetrators got away.
