An Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) that had been set up by al Shabaab terrorists hit and killed two curious hyenas in a bizarre incident in Konton area, Wajir County.
The area is near the Kenya-Somalia border where the terror group and their sympathisers roam freely targeting security agents and government officials.
Police said they heard an explosion on Friday midnight from their station and knew the terrorists were either on their way to the precincts or were attacking a mobile team.
Police said it was by the grace of God the hyenas were killed instead of them.
It is suspected they were curious of what had been planted there and in the process, they triggered the explosion.
