Three poachers out to kill rhinos eaten by pride of hungry lions

The scattered remains of three poachers sneaking into the Sibuya Game Reserve in Eastern Province, South Africa to slaughter rhinos were found on Tuesday  and assumed to have been eaten by a pride of hungry lions.

According to Newsweek, police made the grim discovery in the area of the lion camp. A head and bloodied body parts were recovered next to three pairs of empty shoes. A staff helicopter has been searching the area for more hunters, and it is not known if they are dead or alive.

“… They came heavily armed with hunting rifles and axes which we have recovered and enough food to last them for several days so we suspect they were after all of our rhino here,” stated the reserve’s owner Nick Fox. “They were clearly intent on killing rhinos and cutting off their horns. But the lions are our watchers and guardians and they picked the wrong pride and became a meal.”

The game reserve is one of the most popular vacation and wildlife viewing attractions in the Eastern Cape. The reserve is home to rhinos,  lions, elephants, buffalo and leopards. In 2016, the reserve was attacked by poachers who killed three rhinos and cut off their horns.

This time the animals won.

    I don’t think it was a grim discovery of 3 dead poachers. It brings a smile to my face, 3 less to worry about killing beautiful animals. One point for karma. Karma please pick up the speed more justice needed for the animals. ????

    This wasn’t a grim discovery. It was justice! Any time humans catch a poacher, they should end the poacher IMMEDIATELY. If they did, the problem would soon take care of itself. Those rhinos are endangered, as are many of the species found there. Even giraffes are threatened now. Time to get serious about protecting them, and that means serious poacher eradication and removal.
