A man was arrested after he was found in possession of poison in the Kruger National Park, management said on Saturday.
The man was arrested on Thursday after being searched by rangers in the park.
“He entered the park through the Phalaborwa gate en route to Mozambique,” spokesman William Mabasa said.
Rangers found four bottles on him and questioned about the contents, but found the man's story to be inconsistent.
The rangers called police and the man was arrested.
Police could not immediately confirm the arrest.
Earlier in the week, French news agency Agence France-Presse reported that a Zimbabwean court sentenced a poacher to more than 15 years in prison for poisoning and killing elephants with cyanide.
This was the fourth conviction relating to poisoning wildlife in the country in a month.
According to the report, the Parks and Wildlife Authority said 100 elephants were killed for their ivory with cyanide in one national park in just over a month.
Three other poachers were sentenced in September to a minimum of 15 years each for poisoning 81 elephants. - Sapa
