The criminals are now milking them at night while they are asleep. They later smear the udder with cow dung.
A farmer Priscilah Njeri noticed this a week ago after the milk produce of her cows reduced drastically.

“I thought it was due to the weather conditions until several other neighbors complained of the same. We sought an advise from a local veterinary officer who ruled otherwise,” she told The Standard.
She immediately embarked on adding more food supply and salt to her three cows but things did not change.
Njeri together with other farmers concluded that the change was abnormal.
“We decided to guard our animals on a 24 hour basis but still we could not notice anything,” she said.
Not until last Tuesday when one of the farmers Joseph Githinji who was guarding his two cows in the wee hours of the night noticed something rare.

He spotted two people with milk baskets and water.
“Their intention was to milk my cows but immediately I raised alarm, they fled for safety. Upon searching at the farm, I found a jerrican full of milk,” he said.
