Tourist dies and another injured in hippo attack on Kenyan lake

According to kenya Wildlife Services (KWS), Chang Ming Chuang was pronounced dead on arrival at the Naivasha District hospital after being attacked by a hippo.

The middle aged foreigner died hours after he was attacked by the hippo near Sopa Lodge South Lake while visiting the lakeside town.

KWS said they are tracking the killer hippo.

On Sunday, Kenyan newspaper The Star quoted the head of a boat owners' association in Navaisha as saying that higher than normal water levels were causing hippos to wander from the lake on to nearby farms and hotel properties searching for pasture.

Hippos are considered the most unsafe land animal in Africa because the world's third largest mammal can be extremely aggressive and territorial.

Kenya's wildlife authority says a Chinese tourist died after he was attacked by a hippo as he was taking pictures on the shores of Lake Naivasha in the Rift Valley.

"He was rushed to Naivasha sub-county hospital bleeding profusely but he passed on while undergoing treatment", he said.

"The hippo that attacked the Chinese was looking for pasture near the hotel when the incident occurred".

The attacks brought to six the number of people who have been attacked and killed by hippos in Naivasha since the year began.

In the second case, a fisherman was attacked by another hippo a few kilometers from the scene of the first incident.

It is reported that the middle-aged man strayed into an area where the animals were resting leading to the fatal attack.

Naivasha police boss Samuel Waweru confirmed both incidents and mentioned that the bodies were taken to the mortuary.
