Rangers deployed against hyenas

via Rangers deployed against hyenas – NewsDay Zimbabwe September 30, 2013

ENVIRONMENT minister Saviour Kasukuwere last week said his ministry had dispatched a team of game rangers from the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management (Zimparks) to track down and capture hyenas that have reportedly wreaked havoc in Buhera.

This follows reports that the hyenas attacked livestock and three villagers since the beginning of the month.

“We have dispatched rangers to deal with the situation,” Kasukuwere said.

“We are aware that some hyenas have gone haywire, attacking domesticated animals such as cattle and goats. I am sure we will be on top of the situation.”

Last week, Buhera South MP Joseph Chinotimba pleaded with Parliament to find a lasting solution to the issue, adding that the hyenas had become a menace to both villagers and their livestock.

Chinotimba also appealed to public transport operators using the Harare–Buhera route to avoid travelling at night as they are exposing passengers to attacks by wildlife from the nearby Save Valley Conservancy.

Following the complaint, the Ministry of Transport immediately warned bus operators to follow their daytime timetables or risk having their route permits cancelled.

    “the crocodile has eaten the sun” and now the hyenas are circling. Your transport operators do not operate at night so you will not see your wovits poaching ivory and meat while your new yellow master moves in.

    When daylight comes and the hyenas go, nothing will be left.

    sweet dreams comrades, sweet dreams
