Just received from Ole Naishu –
We finally received some decent rain last night for the first time in weeks and hope that the overgrazed and decimated pastures will recover. There are still several hundred sheep and goats illegally grazing inside the ranch by day and approximately 1,500 head of cattle that are being grazed at night. These include large herds from Leparua, Isiolo County. Herders grazing at night encountered a herd of Elephant in the Dam Repeater area and shot a pregnant cow, an AK rifle was used to shoot her. Rounds recovered at the scene included two misfired rounds with light primer strikes. The ivory was recovered and handed over to KWS whilst the tracks led out of the ranch and into the Chumvi area.
