Original text on this topic:
Diceros bicornis to private land. At least 30 black rhinos have been poached on private land over the period April 1989 to December 1993. In addition, over this period four black rhinos have been found dead with no evidence of poaching but with their horns missing. In the worst poaching cases (such as the total eradication over a period of about 8 months of a group of 12 black rhinos on Ruwanzi Ranch, Karoi district), there has been evidence or at least strong suspicion of staff.
