SAPA is reporting that three suspected rhino poachers were killed by rangers in the Kruger National Park on Wednesday.

The rangers heard a gunshot which sent them in search of the poachers. Three Mozambican men were found at the site in their 20's, and upon being discovered, there was a shootout.

Fortunately, all the rangers were unharmed. The three poachers were killed during the confrontation and some ammunition along with a hunting rifle was recovered from the area.

The rangers have not found any dead or wounded rhinos in the region as of yet but are keeping a close eye on the situation.

Funny, I don't see the report yet on the SAPA feed....
But great news anyway!

Great! Now cut off their penises and put it through a mincer. Dry it out and grind into a finer texture.

Then sell it back to the Chinese as an aphrodisiac.

Create a whole new market: Rhino poacher dieck
