2 Suspected Poachers Killed

2 suspected poachers were killed following a shootout with National Parks rangers. The shootout took place in Bubye Conservancy near Beitbridge. The two are reported to have had rifles and an axe when they encountered rangers tracking a rhino.

Said National Parks spokesperson Tinashe Farawo:

They were found poaching in the area by our officers and upon being ordered to surrender they fired at the rangers. There was an exchange of gunfire and unfortunately they were shot and killed. It is unfortunate that two lives have been lost, but our officers had no option when their lives were in danger.
