Poachers Kill White Rhino In Bikita

Poachers Kill White Rhino In Bikita

Poachers shot and killed an endangered white rhinoceros and harvested some of its body parts before burying the carcass in a pit in Bikita, Masvingo Province on Sunday last week.

ZRP national spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, confirmed the incident, saying two bullet heads were retrieved from the carcass after it was cut open.

The poachers covered the carcass with black polythene plastic and some tree branches. Said Nyathi:

The ZRP is investigating a case of poaching which occurred in Bikita, where a white rhinoceros carcass was found slightly buried in a pit approximately 1.5 metres deep with some body parts missing…

Two gunshot wounds were noted on its shoulder and two bullet heads were recovered from the shoulder after it was cut open.

In an unrelated incident, Police in Victoria Falls arrested Leonard Ndebele (36) for unlawful possession of raw ivory.

The suspect was arrested on 21 February after detectives received information to the effect that the suspect was in possession of ivory which he intended to sell in Victoria Falls.

Police made some follow-ups leading to the arrest of the suspect and the recovery of two elephant tusks, weighing 37.86kgs, which the suspect hid in the bush.
