One went to Abuko while the other went to Tabokoto village, a news release from the Department of Parks and Wildlife states.
However, the Department adds that one was encountered at Tabokoto by some boys approximately 10 people, and had chased the hyena between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. to a garden called the White House where it was beaten seriously to near death.
“A woman in the neighbourhood called the assistant director who deployed a response team to bring it back to Abuko Nature Reserve and later died at the Reserve premises.”
“The Second hyena was pursued but went into the mangroves and will be in the vicinity of Abuko, Fajikunda, and Tallinding. The Directorate is optimistic that it will return if not will be killed.”
“Presently a team of wildlife rangers is within the communities to respond once sighted. We urge everyone to go on their normal business.”
