Three Rare Giraffes Electrocuted by Low-Hanging Power Lines at Soysambu Conservancy in Kenya

The Kenya Wildlife Service, the country’s wildlife agency, said in a separate press release that two giraffes were electrocuted in Soysambu Conservancy on Sunday, without mentioning when a third was killed. ABC News has reached out to the agency for clarification.

The Kenya Power and Lighting Company said it has begun “the process of enhancing the clearance of the electricity distribution infrastructure at Soysambu Conservancy,” which spans some 48,000 acres in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, about 85 miles northwest of Nairobi. The company said it is working with the Kenya Wildlife Service, Soysambu Conservancy’s management and other stakeholders on the effort, which will also involve an audit of the entire infrastructure within the conservation area “to make any other rectifications that may be required.”
