Pietermaritzburg - One of South Africa’s top anti-rhino poaching cops has been fired on allegedly “trumped-up charges” and is now unemployed and looking for a job.

Van Zyl-Roux and his team have been responsible for nabbing more than 70 rhino poachers — including alleged poaching kingpin Dumisani Gwala — for which they have received local and international recognition.

He was pulled from the beat two years ago, and since then rhino poaching in the province has spiked from 116 that year to 162 last year, and this year, to date, 205. At that time he was told he was under investigation for alleged shooting of poachers.


Example 2.

An entire breeding herd of rhinos has been shot and killed by poachers despite the majority having already had their horns removed.

The five rhinos, three males and two females, were killed in two separate incidents at the Wildschutsberg Game Reserve in Eastern Cape, South Africa in the past three weeks, after they were tracked down by poachers. The poachers are believed to have escaped with only minimal amounts of horn as four of the five animals’ horns had already been shorn off as part of an anti-poaching drive.
