Hunters, who are believed to be part of an international smuggling organization, also shoot a rhino to cut off its horn, which is much needed in Asia for use in traditional medicine or as a supposed aphrodisiac.

South Africa, home to about 80% of the world’s rhinoceros population, is a hunters’ paradise, with many “companies” concentrated in Kruger Park, although this phenomenon has declined in the past six years. In 2020, the number of rhinoceros deaths reached 394, down a third from the previous year, according to government data. Despite this, Bahla told AFP that illegal fishermen’s raids have not decreased and could reach 40 per day.
