A Ranger in a game reserve near Hoedspruit, Limpopo reported discovering 3 dead bodies during his morning routine patrol.
Two rifles were discovered near the dead bodies, a dead rhino which had a horn missing already was found a few metres from the dead bodies. According to the ranger a group of rhinos was still lingering around the one that had been killed.
“We’re assuming it was more than 3 poachers because the missing horn is nowhere to be found, we believe the others were able to escape and to the horn with them”. Jan said this is the first poaching in the area this year and he is amazed at how the rhinos fought off the poachers.
