It is unfortunate that a Chirumanzu man was killed by hyenas on Monday. He was dragged from his hut while sleeping during the night. His lower body was eaten.

In a related incident, six beasts have been killed by hyenas in the same area. Zimparks rangers are on the ground tracking down the problem animals with a view to eliminating the hyenas.

Human-wildlife conflicts have become common in recent years partly due to the shrinking of animals’ natural habitats. As a result, animals have been encroaching into human-populated areas.
