rhino was killed and its horn hacked off near Mossel Bay here in the Garden Route late yesterday. It was the only one on the game farm (the others were already sold off to keep poachers of the farm). The remaining rhino was however quite the celebrity over here because of his friendship with a pug named Madam Gigi

Polokwane - Three suspected rhino poachers have been arrested in Polokwane, Limpopo police said on Sunday.

They were arrested during an operation on Friday morning, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

A rifle, axe, and saw were found in their possession.

“The three suspects were allegedly on their way to poach rhinos in the Vaalwater area,” he said.

“The suspects are currently being profiled to see if a possibility exists that they can be linked with previous rhino poaching cases in the province.”

They are due to appear in court on Tuesday, said Mulaudzi.
