Three ‘Rhino Poachers’ Eaten By Lions After Breaking In To South African Game Reserve


Three poachers were killed in  the Sibuya Game Reserve in South Africa, but not by men.

They were eaten by lions.

It is believed that the three men illegally entered the game reserve to poach rhinos. Instead they found themselves in an unusual — and deadly — situation.

“They strayed into a pride of lions – it’s a big pride so they didn’t have too much time,” Mr. Fox told AFP news agency. “We’re not sure how many there were – there’s not much left of them.”

The lions needed to be tranquilized before anyone could approach the remains of the poachers. Because of this, the bodies were not recovered right away.

Eventually recovered at the scene were: three pairs of shoes, various limbs, and a head. In addition, equipment often used by poachers for cutting off rhino horns were also recovered.

Some people felt that the poachers got exactly what they deserved. Ricky Gervais, who’s a comedian, actor, write, and director, posted dryly, “Rest in pieces.”

Other people were concerned about the lions, and the reserve was contacted about their health after the attack. The lions didn’t show any changes in behavior, according to Fox.
