Three rhino poacher suspects have been arrested over the weekend in the Kruger National Park.

Two poachers will appear in court on Monday.

Warrant Officer Oubaas Coetzer said they were allegedly found in possession of rhino horns and rifles.

"Game rangers were patrolling the park when they came across two men with rifles. The men pointed their guns at police and shots were fired from both sides," Coetzer said.

"One of the poachers was injured in his shoulder. Two rhino horns were recovered and we found the carcass."

Police are investigating the possibility that the suspects could be linked to a syndicate.
