    Default Another Rhino poached in the Afsaal area.

    Another rhino poached in the Afsaal area in the Kruger. The baby were found by the management of Jock lodge on Tuesday. The closest border of Kruger is some 20km away but the downside when looking on maps is that there is a 4x4 trail and hiking trail from the border towards Afsaal.

    He’s being sarcastic because there was no response to his original post.

    Do you know if the baby was captured and is safe? I saw on Sanparks FB page that the baby was reported wandering around alone, but I have not seen any subsequent info on the little one.

    Poachers are dropped off as normal tourists . Afsaal is in Prime Rhino area so will be targeted ..They hardly ever climb a fence and walk in (Rhino Poachers so a 20 km distant Boundary fence means nothing in their lives >. Dropped off at a sighting with pick up arrangements or dropped off at favorite waterholes and then spooring Rhino and checking the Middens for fresh signs

    There is some good news. The first day they could not locate it with the helicopter the second day the anti poaching unit went on foot and track the baby down.By now it should have arrived at the rhino sanctuary. Hope all is well. Did not know two were shot. How long this will continue nobody knows. This is not poverty but greed.

    Maybe the headline should read "Poacher was poached"

    This is most probably a turf war hit, which means a bigger, bader, meaner dude has just taken over.

    exactly. If the article was telling us that the known kingpin was shot spread by police acting on intelligence based investigation, after which a firefight broke out, I would say this was good news, some cleaning up being done and maybe even a bit of a deterrent for poachers in this area.

    but this is just one one kingpin taking out another to secure a bigger portion of the trade for himself.

    Mr Big was getting a bit too big for his boots, and was probably skimming a bit more than his “fair share”. Same has happen with other known kingpins. His successor is already setting himself up.

    To throw the firearm for self defence debate in here, is it fair to assume the the kingpin was shot with unlicensed firearms?

    The minister has made it clear that licensed firearms are the cause of violent crime, haven’t you been paying attention
