A 12 year-old male rhino was killed by suspected poachers during a raid at the Lake Nakuru National Park on Monday.

Senior warden Catherine Wambani said the poachers made away with the slain rhino’s horns.

The incident raises to 12, the number of rhinos that have died in Kenya’s national parks in less than a months’ time.
