Black rhino poached in the Maasai Mara

A black rhino has been found killed in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, near the Tanzania border.
It was thought to have been killed on Friday and was minus its horns.

In 2015, 11 rhinos were poached, according to figures from KWS, which says there are about 1,030 of them (black and white) remaining in the country.

According to the Mara Conservancy, there are about 30 black rhinos in the Maasai Mara today, down from around 120 in the early 1970s

A joint investigation is being carried out be KWS and their Tanzanian counterparts.
