A suspected rhino poacher was killed in an elephant stampede at a South African nationwide park on Saturday, officers stated.
The person was amongst three suspected poachers noticed by rangers at Kruger Nationwide Park, the parks service stated in a Sunday press launch.
The trio fled once they have been seen, and through their escape, ran right into a breeding herd of elephants, authorities stated.
One of many suspects was arrested, whereas one other was discovered trampled to death.
A 3rd suspect, who sustained a watch damage, escaped and remained on the lam late Sunday.
Rangers discovered a rifle, an axe and a bag that was left behind by the alleged poachers.
