Three suspected rhino poachers were arrested in Phalaborwa, South Africa on Monday. The police received a tip-off about the suspects and immediately took action.
In addition to arresting the three men (one South African and two Mozambicans) the police confiscated their vehicle and two unlicensed firearms including a hunting rifle.
At this point they will face charges of illegal possession of firearms and ammunition as well as conspiracy to poach rhino. They are due to appear in the Hoedspruit Magistrate's Court in the coming weeks.
