JOHANNESBURG -Two men have been arrested for attempting to poach a rhino on a Limpopo farm.
The pair was arrested on Saturday.
Police confiscated two unlicensed firearms, ammunition, as well as an axe and knives.
The police's Ronel Otto says the two suspects will appear in the Tzaneen Magistrates Court tomorrow on charges of illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.
South Africa signed an anti-poaching agreement with Mozambique last week, a major transit route for rhino horn trafficked to Asia.
An estimated 293 rhino have been killed in the country since the beginning of the year, more than half of which were slain in the Kruger National Park.
