Leopard spotted at Daystar University, Athi River campus

An email sent to all students at Daystar University, Athi River campus,  on Monday informed then about a leopard who was hanging around the campus.

The email sent by  Caroline Mwangi, the campus administrator, detailed what to do in case you a student came face to face with the leopard. The email also revealed that the leopard was last seen in a thicket near the Dam adjacent to Central stores.

Here is a video that was captured of the said leopard.

"Kindly avoid the path during the night and students staying in BETHEL/ SCHU are encouraged to move in groups and should avoid the hot spot area," the email read.

It also advised on the best course of action if attacked by a leopard.

  • Do not approach too closely, especially if you see cubs, either alone or with their mother
  • Avoid a leopard gaze at all costs. In this case, back away slowly; don’t run
  • Avoid crouching since you will appear small and easy prey to attack
  • If a leopard charges, shout, clap your hands and wave your arms to appear bigger

The email concluded, "We have contacted the KWS and a trap is being laid within the campus."
