CAPE TOWN - The Kruger National Park says an increase in elephant poaching can be attributed to poachers from Mozambique.
Rangers say there's been a drastic increase in the number of elephants being poached since June last year, with the number standing at 22.
Counter-poaching efforts have been stepped up, with rangers working with the local law enforcement and the army.
SANParks regional manager Albert Machaba said, "The poachers are mostly coming from Mozambique area and they can also from the communities on the western side, so they are coming from both sides."
