Mozambican poachers get 25 years in South Africa court

Three Mozambicans have been sentenced to 25 years each in a South African court for rhino poaching, according to the South African national parks body.

The men were found guilty of illegally hunting rhino in the Kruger National Park in July 2010.

The head of SANParks, David Mabunda, said the sentence was harsher than other similar cases.

In 2011, a record 450 rhino were killed in South Africa, according to the Department of Environment Affairs — via redwolf.newsvine.com
