“Full-time security has been brought in at two wild animal parks in the fight against a ‘realistic’ threat from rhino poachers.
Port Lympne and Howletts Wild Animal Parks were put on high alert in March after Kent police warned a poaching plot targeting rhinos was operating in the UK.
More than 80 volunteers offered to help protect the animals at night alongside staff, following an appeal from The Aspinall Foundation, which runs the parks.
Now, Right Guard Security has been contracted to help guard the two park’s 18 rare black rhinos.”
