On 23 May 2013, poachers brutally killed a rhinoceros in Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya. Three days later, poachers attacked and killed two rhinoceroses in two separate incidents: at Solio Ranch near Nyeri in central Kenya, and at Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary in Tsavo West National Park. Just one day later, more poachers shot a rhinoceros at Meru National Park in northern Kenya. On 29 May 2013, two more rhinos were killed on a private ranch in Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary.
