Rhino poachers attack in Western Cape
Cape Town - A rhino has been killed and two others have been darted for dehorning by poachers at Aquila private game reserve in Worcester, Cape Town, it was reported on Monday.
A 6-year-old male rhino was killed and its horns were hacked off with a machete on Saturday, reported The Cape Times.
Another male was darted and its horn was removed with a chainsaw, but the animal survived the attack.
The surviving male's 4-year-old female calf was darted twice, but was not dehorned.
It was believed that anti-poaching patrols might have scared off the poachers.
According to Die Burger, the injured male was recovering well and was no longer in a critical condition.
