Poachers have killed a rhino for its horn after breaking into a zoo near Paris, reports The Local.

The unknown assailants killed a 5-year-old rhino on Monday night at the Thoiry zoo in Yvelines, west of Paris.

The animal was shot in the head three times and had its horn removed, probably with a chainsaw, said a source close to the case.

According to Le Parisien, it is the first time in Europe that poachers have attacked a living animal in a zoo.

The thieves broke into the wildlife park by breaking through the main gate and two other barriers without waking any of the five people who live on site.

The zoo director said the team was in mourning.

"It's a real shock, it's unbelievable to see this on a site like ours," he said.
