Two rhinos were killed in Nakuru

05 July 2013, 17:00 Steve Wambugu

Nakuru Senior Park Warden John Wambua has said only two rhinos had been killed by poachers and not seven as reported by a section of the media.

Wambua said one of the rhinos died last week a natural death while the other was killed by poachers at the park.

“We only have two which have died and only one which was killed by poachers; it is not true what some media had reported” he said.

The Senior Park Warden told media on Friday that the security teams are following crucial leads and are expected to catch up with the
perpetrators of the heinous act soon.

He added that Park Wardens at the park remains on high alert and that the surveillance cover has continued to improve as one way of curbing the vice.

“Security at the sanctuary has been well beefed up to ensure that there was no more poaching at the park” he said.

The park warden said that cases of poaching at Nakuru Park had dropped significantly and they were wining the war against poaching.

In a press release circulated to media last month, it indicated that since the beginning of the year, Kenya had lost 21 rhinos and 117
elephants to poachers.

Out of these elephants, 37 were killed in protected areas while 80 were outside protected areas.
