The Tsavo East National Park management is aware of the state of a neighbouring snake farm that has attracted public attention.
The owner of the farm fell out with her landlord, the Kenya Railways Corporation, and has been told to vacate the premises.
KWS reptiles handlers are preparing to translocate those animals.  The  snake farm is already closed but awaiting movement of these animals which require specialized handlers.
The Senior Warden is personally visiting the farm where the ostrich is kept to confirm the conditions under which it’s kept and advise the keeper. This is to reinforce the work of Licensing officers  who routinely visit such facilities  to ensure they are in order.
