A bull has been detained at the Khayega police station in Kakamega County, Kenya, after it trampled a woman to death.

The bull’s owner was also detained while police investigated the incident.

The Bull, nicknamed ‘Tusker,’ reportedly charged at three women from Lutoto village and trampled one of them to death as the owner, Josphat Bilimo, was driving it home from a match last Friday.

The 60-Year-Old Woman Identified as Felistus Luda is said to have been attacked by the bull as she attempted to flee the scene.

Mr Bonventure Munanga, the director of the Kakamega County Bullfighting Association, who confirmed the incident on Tuesday, July 5, said the bull caught up with woman as she attempted to flee to safety.

“The Woman could not run fast enough since she had sustained an injury in accident and she was unfortunately killed by the bull,” said Mr Munanga.

Kakamega East sub county police commander Mr Robert Makau told Nation.Africa that police were called in to rescue the bull from villagers who wanted to slash it to death and share it’s meat.

“The DCIO is handling the investigations. The owner of the bull will appear in court on Thursday to face charges related to negligence in handling the animal,” said Mr Makau.

Mr Munanga said the owner of the bull tried to negotiate with the family of the woman so that they could settle the matter out of Court.

“He agreed to meet the burial expenses, but villagers were planning to attack the bull and kill it as dictated by tradition. The bull is supposed to be killed and the meat shared out to be eaten,” said Mr Munanga.

The incident has highlighted the issue of safety in relation to the popular bullfighting location, which draws large crowds in the western region.

Mr Munanga stated that he had met with bull owners to discuss safety during bullfighting matches in Kakamega County.
