The tables were turned when a hunter, make that a suspected poacher, was devoured by a pride of lions that he was stalking in South Africa. According to the Daily Mail, the man could be heard screaming near the Ingwelala Private Nature Reserve, but the big cats quickly made their kill, and ate him, before help arrived.
Most of the man’s body was eaten by the lions…little was left behind, aside from the man’s head. Hunting rifles and ammunition, typical of what is used by big game hunters, were also discovered nearby. The man was not carrying any identification, but the police noted that the discovery of his head would help them determine who he was.
Poaching of the magnificent big cats is an ongoing problem in South Africa – in May 2017, 20 captive lions, held at a big cat sanctuary, were killed by poachers who cut off their paws, tails, heads and skin. There is a market for lion body parts because people believe that there is medicinal value from them.
The authorities are currently investigating the situation.
