A suspected poacher has been killed at the Solio Ranch after he was allegedly found scaling the electric fence.
The man was shot by Kenya Wildlife Service rangers guarding the privately owned ranch on Wednesday night.
Two colleagues thought to be armed with a rifle escaped on foot.
KWS assistant director Aggrey Maumo said two daggers, a phone and a torch were found on the suspect, who was wearing three trousers.
He said the rangers found footsteps near the fence a few days ago.
Maumo said two rhinos have recently been killed at the ranch, though the poachers were unable to chop off their horns.
