The minister of environmental affairs announced that two suspected rhino horn smugglers were arrested at OR Tambo airport. They were on their way to Hong Kong with rhino horn valued at R2.8m. Well done all.

About 150 dead Egyptian geese were found near Mjejane River lodge, on the south bank of the Crocodile river between Malelane and Crocodile bridge. They apparently ate poisoned seeds that people deliberately set out for them.

Am I dreaming, or has something similar happened along the Croc. River before? What are the legalities of doing this?

In my previous post, I mentioned that two people were arrested at OR Tambo. They are Chinese nationals. A Vietnamese guy was also arrested this Wednesday with 28,7 kg of rhino horn worth R6 million.
