Polokwane - Three rhino poachers have been arrested at Nwanedi Game Reserve in Tshamatumbu, Limpopo police said on Thursday.

Colonel Ronel Otto said rangers saw them carrying a hunting rifle on Tuesday.

“When the rangers confronted the suspects, shots were fired at them. The rangers returned fire, injuring one of the suspects in the leg,” said Otto.

The men fled, but were arrested later at their homes at Mosodi Village. An unlicensed .303 hunting rifle was confiscated.

They were expected to appear in the Mutale Magistrate's Court on Thursday on charges of trespassing, illegal possession of a firearm and unlawful hunting. - Sapa
