KWS launches manhunt for poachers

28 May 2013, 13:37 Steve Wambugu

Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) has mounted a major manhunt for poachers who killed four rhinos in the past one week across the country.

According to a press statement circulated to media houses by Paul Odundo from KWA on Tuesday, the security teams are following crucial leads and expect to catch up with the perpetrators of the heinous crime soon.

The rhinos were killed in Lake Nakuru National Park, Solio Ranch (Nyeri), Ngulia Sanctuary (Tsavo West National Park), and Meru National Park. The poachers took off with the horns of the rhinos.

Since the beginning of the year, Kenya has lost 21 rhinos and 117 elephants to poachers. Out of these elephants, 37 were killed in protected areas while 80 were outside protected areas.

These numbers include last week’s poaching incidents.

Last year, Kenya lost 384 elephants and 30 rhinos to criminals.
