Three Rhino Poachers Eaten By Lions in South Africa

Lions kill suspected rhino poachers who sneaked onto South African reserve

Park owner Nick Fox, 60, said: "We found enough body parts and three pairs of empty shoes which suggest to us that the lions ate at least three of them but it is thick bush and there could be more".

More than 7,000 have been killed in South Africa in the past decade.

At least three suspected poachers have been mauled to death and eaten by lions after breaking into a wildlife reserve in South Africa. The axe that was found on the scene is what is used to by these poachers to hack off the horn after they kill the animal.

"The only body part we found was one skull and one bit of pelvis, everything else was completely gone", he said.

Mr Fox said it was not clear exactly how numerous men there were, as there was "not much left of them".

Asked if he was happy that the rhinos were safe, Fox said that he was extremely happy.

At around 4.30 a.m. on Monday morning, one of Sibuya's anti-poaching dogs gave her handler a warning that something was wrong.

Washington might indeed have not entirely given up on an idea of an intervention, or at least a military coup in Venezuela. Trump!" Maduro said Trump's question to his advisers came after Venezuelan opposition figures visited the White House.

"As it was already dark it was not possible to investigate the area until first light at which time we arranged for our vet to dart the entire pride of lions so that Police forensic teams assisted by our Anti-poaching unit could comb the immediate area for clues", Fox added.

These items included "all the hallmarks of a gang intent on killing rhino and removing their horns", Fox said, including a "high-powered rifle, gloves, wire cutters and the remains of a backpack".

The search party also enlisted the assistance of a helicopter to locate any survivors.

It's unclear whether the incident is the same as the one being investigated by the Eastern Cape police following the discovery of suspected human skeletal remains on a game farm in the Kenton on Sea area.

The 30 square mile park is home to all of Africa's "Big Five" - rhinos, lions, elephants, buffalos, and leopards.

In 2016 the reserve lost three rhinos when poachers got into the park and shot them dead for their ivory horns.
