KWS LAUNCHES MAJOR HUNT FOR POACHERS


Kenya Wildlife Service has mounted a major operation in pursuit of
poachers who killed four rhinos in the last one week across the
country.

Security teams are following crucial leads and expect to catch up with
the perpetrators of the heinous crime.

The rhinos were killed in Lake Nakuru National Park, Solio Ranch
(Nyeri), Ngulia Sanctuary (Tsavo West National Park), and Meru
National Park. The poachers took off with the rhino horns.

Since the beginning of the year, Kenya has lost 21 rhinos and 117
elephants to poachers. Out of these elephants, 37 were killed in protected areas while 80 were outside protected areas.

These numbers include last week poaching incidents.

Last year, Kenya lost 384 elephants and 30 rhinos to criminals, a
worrying trend that is not sustainable.

  1. Is Kenya still “”happy”” with all the CHINEES roadworkers, because WE know the what they “”like”” , from a RHINO and ELEPHANT.
