Poachers kill rhino for its horn at French zoo – ABC News

Poachers broke into a zoo outside Paris overnight and shot and killed a rhinoceros before cutting off one of its horns, zoo officials said today.

The brazen incident is believed to be the first instance of rhino poaching in Europe.

The Thoiry Zoo, in the suburbs west of Paris, said in a statement that the poachers cut off part of the rhino’s second horn too but appeared to have been interrupted or had defective equipment.

Vince, the 4-year-old male white rhino that was killed, mostly likely had his horn taken off with a chainsaw, according to the zoo.

The zoo’s two other white rhinos — 37-year-old Gracie and 5-year-old Bruno — survived, the zoo said.
