Poachers kill rhino bull near Mossel Bay

Rhino poachers have struck again in the Western Cape, killing a bull on a private farm near Mossel Bay and stripping it of both its horns, police said on Tuesday.

The bull’s carcass was found on Monday on Bergsig farm near Hartenbos and Mossel Bay, said Colonel Vishnu Naidoo.

Both horns had been severed.

“It probably happened on Sunday night,” he said.

The Western Cape has recorded far fewer incidents of rhino poaching compared to other regions, such as the Kruger National Park.

This was only the second incident in the past 12 months, Naidoo said.

An investigation was underway.—Sapa
