Five men were arrested for allegedly killing five rhino in the Hluhluwe area, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Monday.

The men, aged between 20 and 64, were arrested on Saturday after police received a tip-off, Captain Thulani Zwane said.

The rhino were poached this month.

Two rifles and 93 rounds of ammunition were recovered by police.

Zwane said the men faced charges of rhino poaching and possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition.

The men were expected to appear in the Mtubatuba Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Great that they got caught but unfortunately Rhino's had to die. Hope they try escape and get killed in the process because the courts will not pass the correct justice IMO.

Just having and being in possession of a illegal firearm should be 15yrs alone plus a month for every bullet.

They should have their "horns" removed.
