← Back to Poachers Slay Four Rhinos in South African Sanctuary

Four rhinos killed by poachers picture

Just another day in South Africa’s rhino wars. These four rhinos were killed by poachers in Lalibela Game Reserve, in the Eastern Cape. The animals may have come together to defend themselves after they were darted with a tranquilizer. The owners of the animals suspect the horns were taken while the rhinos were still alive, immobilized under heavy sedation. Photo courtesy of Lalibela.
