Anti-poach­ing of­fi­cer shot on duty

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Tam­lyn Jolly

AN anti-poach­ing of­fi­cer at a pri­vate Zu­l­u­land game re­serve was shot in the line of duty on Satur­day. De­tails sur­round­ing the in­ci­dent are sketchy, but ac­cord­ing to IPSS Med­i­cal Res­cue, the of­fi­cer was shot while pa­trolling the fence line of the game re­serve. The Black Ea­gle/IPSS aeromed­i­cal helicopter was dis­patched to the scene and once the of­fi­cer had been sta­bilised, he was flown to the Len­med Ethek­wini Hos­pi­tal and Heart Cen­tre for spe­cial­ist care. The in­ci­dent is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by po­lice.
