Conflict and politics in Amboseli
Very sad news in the Amboseli NP and area. Ezra, one of Amboseli's oldest remaining bulls, aged 46, died on Wednesday of multiple spear wounds, including the one you see in his forehead, which he attempted to rip out but broke instead.
Since a few days, Maasai warriors within the Amboseli ecosystem rose up in protest by hunting down the area's elephant, lion and buffalo, to try and force KWS to better allocate resources to the community, given that the Maasai are the ones who must daily interact with the majority of the animals. The Maasai community currently earns only 2% of the revenue from the Amboseli gate collection revenue.
