For the first time in two decades, a rhino has been poached in the Etosha National Park.
A black rhino bull carcass was discovered on the southwest side of the park, while it is believed that the carcass was between two to three days old before the discovery was made in the early hours of Tuesday morning (28 October).
The Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) has called upon perpetrators to stop with these selfish activities immediately, and that they are ready to confront whoever will be caught taking part in such barbaric activities to face the full wrath of the law. Citizens are also encouraged to be extra vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour or suspected cases of poaching to relevant authorities such as the Namibian police, customs officials, the Namibian Defence Force or the MET.
