Rhino deaths: Ezemvelo plea

2009-12-12 00:00

TWO more of KwaZulu-Natal’s rhinos fell victim to poachers this week.

Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife’s Jeff Gaisford yesterday said the rhinos were in the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park and the Opathe Game Reserve.

Bheki Khoza, EKZNW executive director for biodiversity conservation, said the poaching appears to be a syndicated operation.

“It is disheartening, but we will do our best to bring the operators behind this to justice,” he said.

“We appeal to any member of the public who might have information on these attacks to call the anti-poaching hotline 086 00 10111. All such contacts will be dealt with in strict confidence,” he said.
