BRITS - Two rhino carcasses have been found at the Sable Game Farm, adding to the escalating number of poached rhino in the country.

The Hawks' Paul Ramoloko said it appeared the animals were shot with a high calibre rifle.

“The bodies were found in the early stages of decomposition and may have been poached a few days ago.”

Ramaloko said a search for the suspect was underway.

Last week management at the Kruger National Park said nine rhino carcasses were found with their horns removed.

More than 660 rhino were poached in 2012 and 267 arrests were made.
