Company in London wants updated rhino poaching statistics

August 20, 2015


MBOMBELA – A company in London, Network for Animals (NFA), on Saturday called on the South African Government to make the rhino-poaching crisis in the country a higher priority.

Not only is it calling for tougher sentences for poachers, but also for greater transparency about how many rhinos are being slaughtered.

The African director of NFA, Mr David Barritt, says the latest rhino-poaching statistics issued by the government seem to be a massive understatement.

It claimed that 393 rhinos had been killed in South Africa, by the end of April, and had since failed to announce any updated statistics.

Outraged South Africans against poaching and most recent statistic of rhino poaching

Independent figures collated by Outraged SA Citizens Against Poaching (Oscap) said the true figure today is more than 710. “Even the lower figure shows a 20 per cent increase in poaching which in itself is shocking but the reality is the slaughter has more than doubled,” said Barritt.

Wonder what the stats are for 2015, then? O**

Prince Harry said 1500 recently, but that is unclear. Oscap thinks about 1100, but Kruger figures are still a secret...
