South Africa: One rhino killed per day so far in 2011

The latest figures from South African National Parks (SANParks) are showing that the country continues to lose rhino at a rate of around one per day. The latest figures show that just over 130 rhino were killed across South Africa in less than four months. During that time 72 suspects were arrested, 13 of whom were killed and six wounded.
The 130 killed rhino represent nearly 40 percent of the 333 rhino killed by poachers in 2010 in South Africa.
