Two white rhinos killed in park

Two white rhinos have been killed by poachers near Albasini Road in the Pretoriuskop ranger section of the Kruger National Park, a park spokesman said on Tuesday.

The carcasses of a cow and her calf were discovered on Tuesday morning, said William Mabasa. It was unclear when they were killed.
"The two animals were both shot in the head and only one front horn was removed from the cow."
"We believe that this is truly a despicable act and would like to encourage everybody to come forward and report any suspicious movements," said Mabasa.
