Reward offered for rhino poaching info


Limpopo police are offering a R500,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of rhino poachers or those planning to poach rhinos.

“We need the co-operation of each and every citizen of this province and country to bring the perpetrators to book and stop this slaughter from continuing,” Limpopo provincial commissioner Lt-Gen Simon Mpende said on Sunday.

Mpende said the police could not fight the battle alone and public assistance was needed.

In 2011, 74 rhino were killed for their horns in Limpopo. Last month, at least 10 rhinos were poached in the province. More than 165 rhinos have been killed since 2008. Thirty-eight suspected poachers are awaiting trial. - Sapa
