Media Release: Two Rhino killed in the KNP

28 February 2012

Tourists from one of the private open safari vehicles noticed the two carcasses and immediately alerted Rangers and members of the South African Police Services who rushed to the scene. The poachers are still at large but investigations are currently underway.

"It is indeed a sad story for us to continue to report about dead rhino in the Park and we seriously appeal to the communities to begin to assist with information on the suspected poachers by reporting them to the authorities." said KNP HOD of Communication and Public Relations, Mr William Mabasa.

To report any environmental crime, and specifically rhino poaching information or incidents, please email or call: 082 908 3053
