A white rhino was found dead with both horns removed in Ndumo, KwaZulu Natal, yesterday. "The rhino had been caught in a cable snare that seemed to have been deliberately set for big game, such as hippo, buffalo or rhino, all of which frequent the area. Both horns had been removed," Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife spokesman Jeff Gaisford said yesterday. It was believed the rhino was trapped in the snare on Tuesday, and was found by game rangers yesterday. "This brings the total number of rhinos killed by poachers in KwaZulu-Natal this year to 15," Gaisford said. The sex of the adult rhino was unknown and no arrests had been made.
