Three men have been arrested in connection with rhino poaching in Phalaborwa, Limpopo police said on Monday.
They were caught on Sunday after police received a tip-off about poachers, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.
"Police confiscated a hunting rifle and a revolver, both unlicensed, as well as a licensed pistol, and their vehicle."
The men, a South African and two Mozambicans, would appear in the Hoedspruit Magistrate's Court soon. They faced charges of illegal possession of firearms and ammunition, and conspiracy to poach rhino.
