Hundreds of wild animals, including buffaloes and impalas have died in Laikipia County, Kenya

Vets have ruled out an anthrax outbreak in Laikipia County where a suspected zoonotic disease has killed wild animals in the region.
 
Hundreds of wild animals among them buffaloes, impalas and other herbivores have died in conservancies and ranches in the last two weeks.
 
Conservancy owners believe the disease must have been brought in and circulated across the expansive ranches and conservancies by animals belonging to illegal herders who invaded their farms mid-2016.
 
“We have no reason not to believe that the disease was brought in by the herders,” said Josh Perrett.
