Late word that four park rangers were killed by ivory poachers during a shootout  in the Congo’s Garamba National Park late last week.

According to African Parks, the rangers were tracking the collar of a poached elephant when the poachers opened fire.

Peter Fearnhead, CEO African Parks told media outlets, “Our sincere condolences go to the families of the four men who tragically lost their loved ones while they were bravely eliminating the scourge of elephant poaching from Garamba National Park.”

Sad news indeed.
