Poachers kill rhino at French zoo

0

Keepers found Vince, a four-year-old white rhino, in his enclosure at Thoiry Zoo on Tuesday morning.
One of his horns had been hacked off with a chainsaw, police said.
The African rhino’s ivory horn commands high prices on the black market, with about 100 killed every month in the wild.
However, this is thought to be the first time poachers have targeted a rhino living in a European zoo.
France outlawed the trade in ivory and horns last year.
