Hunters died in Sibuya Game Reserve

There are six lions in the pride, which act as "watch-dogs" to help protect the resident rhinos from poachers.

In February a poacher was killed by lions in the Umbabat Game Reserve near the Kruger National Park, and his family were forced to identify him using all that was left - his head.

PRESS RELEASELions Kill Suspected Poachers on Sibuya Game ReserveSometime during the night of Sunday 1st and early.

It's unclear how many people were killed on the reserve at this time.

A ranger taking guests at the Sibuya Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape on a safari drive on Tuesday afternoon discovered human remains close to a pride of lions. These items are standard for poachers intending to kill rhinos and remove their horns.

An ax, shoes, and gloves were found later when police and an anti-poaching unit arrived.

Previous reports suggested that a lone poacher had been attacked, but further investigation of the awful scene suggested at least two people were devoured by the lions.

However, Fox said, after an initial investigation, it appeared the dog had been alerted by something else that was out of the ordinary coming from the pride of lions inside the park.

A police forensic team will continue to investigate.

After ensuring the lions were not a threat to tourists, Fox said there will not be any changes to "the status quo of our lions".

Nick Fox, the owner of the reserve, said in a statement that the group of poachers were armed with a high-powered rifle with a silencer, an axe, wire cutters and other weapons. She said, "We do not know identities, but firearms have been taken by the police and will be sent to the ballistics laboratory to see if they have been used in poaching before".

There has been a rise in poaching in Africa in recent years, to feed growing demand for rhino horn in parts of Asia. According to stats from the South African government, more than 1,000 rhinos were killed in South Africa previous year.
