The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) rangers and local police have arrested two suspects believed to be behind the killing of giraffes in Garissa County in northeast Kenya and the sales of the meat in Nairobi and Mombasa.

The KWS said the two men, arrested in possession of giraffe meat on Sunday, are being held at a police station in Ijara, awaiting to be arraigned in court on Tuesday.

“Two rare and endangered reticulated giraffes were killed in the same area two months ago,” the KWS said in a statement.

KWS officials in Garissa said the two, who were armed with machetes and a big torch, had a motorcycle used to transport the giraffe meat to towns either for sale or for domestic use. Enditem
