Poachers have killed a rhino for its horn after breaking into a zoo near Paris.
The unknown assailants killed a 5-year-old rhino on Monday night at the Thoiry zoo in the department of Yvelines, to the west of Paris.
The animal was shot in the head three times and had its horn removed, probably with a chainsaw, said a source close to the case.
According to Le Parisien newspaper, it's the first time in Europe that poachers have attacked a living animal in a zoo.
