Re: Rhino poaching updates
2011 has come and gone, leaving in its wake close on 500 known rhino carcasses despite the best efforts of so many. One day, when the syndicates are exposed, I wonder if we’ll ever know the depths to which these greedy and sick individuals have sunk at the expense of these magnificent creatures. According to acclaimed rhino scientists, if poaching continues at its current rate South Africa’s rhino herd will go into population decline by mid-2012.

THE South African Police Service was "already working on a few leads" after eight rhino carcasses were found in the southern section of the Kruger National Park on Tuesday, South African National Parks spokesman Rey Thakhuli said.

South Africa lost 448 rhinos to poachers last year, of which 252 were in the Kruger National Park. The figure was markedly higher than 2010’s countrywide loss of 333 rhinos and in stark contrast to the loss of 24 in 2006.

Rhino horn smugglers appear in court

Three men will appear in a Zimbabwean court for rhino horn smuggling on Wednesday.

This after they tried to smuggle US$120,000 (R960,000) worth of horns into South Africa.

Authorities believe the men shot and killed a rhino on a farm in eastern Zimbabwe on New Year’s Eve.

Two men were arrested at Harare’s busy Road Port Terminals, where buses leave for South Africa.

Officials said the two horns weighed 8.2 kilograms and were found inside an Isuzu bakkie.

One of the suspects, Zivanai Masvaire, is a game scout at Eldorado Farm in eastern Macheke.

The official Herald newspaper said he led his two accomplices to the farm to kill the rhino and dehorn it.

Like South Africa, Zimbabwe is battling to preserve its dwindling rhino population.

In the 1980s, Zimbabwe had a rhino population of around 3,000. The figure is now closer to 700.

TWO suspected rhino poachers were killed in a shoot-out with game rangers in the Kruger National Park on Wednesday night, park general manager Reynold Thakhuli said on Thursday.

Eight dehorned rhino carcasses were found in the southern section of the park on Tuesday, sparking widespread dismay and outrage because South Africa lost 448 rhinos to poachers last year. The eight found on Tuesday are officially the first for this year.

and further on:
SA is home to almost 90% of the world’s estimated 22800 rhinos. The animals are under unprecedented attack linked to increased demand in Asia, particularly Vietnam, Thailand and Laos, thought to be sparked by increased affluence in the East. There is a mistaken impression that the horn — made of keratin, the fibrous structural proteins that make up hair and nails — has medicinal properties, including as a cure for cancer.

Three convicted rhino poachers are expected to begin serving their 25-year jail sentence, the South African National Parks (SANParks) said on Wednesday.

This was after they were found guilty of illegal hunting and being in possession of illegal firearms and ammunition by the Phalaborwa Magistrate’s Court in Limpopo.

South Africa lost over 20 rhino in January, while more than 400 animals were killed in 2011.

Re: Rhino poaching updates
Walt - thanks for your tireless effort to highlight the effects of this sickness in our country. Your caring is much appreciated.
The thing is, if the big boys at the top of the political food chain have nice deals going with those who run the poaching rings, no amount of prosecutions (successful or not)is going to bring this ongoing massacre to an end.
Each time I read about yet more of these (and other) beautiful creatures being slaughtered, I realise the depraved consciousness that we call 'civilisation' has hit yet another new low.
The sooner this cycle on earth ends, the better for all species!

MOZAMBIQUE was "pondering" legislative changes that would elevate the crime of wildlife poaching to a category of offence that carried heavier sentencing than the current offence of "damage to property", the Mozambican Transfrontier Conservation Area and the South African National Parks (SANParks) said in a joint statement late yesterday.

Much of the rhino poaching that saw a record 448 rhinos poached in SA last year, has taken place in the Kruger National Park that borders Mozambique and with that country’s Limpopo National Park and Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park forms the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. Earlier this month three Mozambicans were sentenced to 25 years’ imprisonment for rhino poaching.

A rhino died during a media demonstration of an anti-poaching treatment on Thursday, the Rhino Rescue Project said.

"He responded very well to the treatment and the procedure is 100% safe, but there are always huge risks when such a large animal is sedated," said spokesperson Lorinda Hern.

The rhino - named Spencer - died after veterinarians administered a drug to wake him up after a microchip and tracking device were implanted in his horn, said Hern.

Four SA National Parks (SANParks) officials have been arrested in connection with rhino poaching, SANParks said on Wednesday.

The four officials were arrested on Tuesday afternoon after two rhino were found killed in the Kruger National Park (KNP) earlier that morning, SANParks spokesperson Wanda Mkutshulwa said in a statement.

"The animals had been shot and their horns removed. Further investigations into the killing of the two rhino and possibly other rhino poaching incidents in the area are currently being conducted," she said.

All four officials were stationed in the Pretoriuskop section of the park where 11 rhino have been killed since the beginning of the year.

AFRICA’s biggest animals were poached in near record numbers in 2012, with surging demand for horn and ivory from Asia driving the slaughter of rhinos and elephants.

By mid-December, poachers had killed 633 rhinos in South Africa, according to environment ministry figures.

That marks a new annual peak in the country that is home to most of the continent’s rhinos, and a sharp rise from the record 448 poached last year and the mere handful of deaths recorded a decade ago.

Elsewhere in Africa, the slaughter of elephants continued unabated, with mass killings reported in Cameroon and Democratic Republic of Congo.

Rhinoceros are killed by humans for their horns, which are bought and sold on the black market, and which are used by some cultures for ornamental or (pseudo-scientific) medicinal purposes. The horns are made of keratin, the same type of protein that makes up hair and fingernails.[2]
