JOHANNESBURG – Three rhino poachers were shot dead in the Kruger National Park on Saturday.

SANParks said rangers in the park made contact with a group of six suspected rhino poachers after tracking them for most of Saturday morning.

In the ensuing contact, three men were fatally wounded and three arrested.

One of the arrested men was wounded.

SANParks confirmed that two rifles, ammunition and equipment were recovered.

This comes after a week of successes in the war against rhino poaching.

In Mozambique, rangers had encountered three separate groups trying to poach rhino in the Kruger Park.

A suspect was also shot and killed at the Crocodile Bridge and two horns were recovered.

More than 515 rhino have been killed in and around the country this year – the majority in the Kruger Park.
