Four suspected rhino poachers were shot and killed by rangers in two parks in South Africa over the weekend, the authorities said. Three of the poachers were shot in Kruger, one of the nation’s premier safari destinations, while another was killed in KwaZulu-Natal national park, another popular safari location. More than 333 rhinos were poached in the country in 2010, triple the amount from 2009.
