Suspected Poachers Eaten By Lions In South Africa

Jul 6, 2018


Potentially three suspected rhino poachers have been killed by lions on a game reserve in South Africa.

"They strayed into a pride of lions -- it's a big pride so they didn't have too much time," the reserve’s owner Nick Fox has told media.

"We're not sure how many there were -- there's not much left of them.

"There seems to be clothing for three people. I've not heard of it before in our area.

"We went in yesterday -- I got our vet to dart [anaesthetise] all the lions.

"I think we had a stroke of luck here that the lions got to them before they got to the rhinos. We lost three rhino in March 2016.

"It's still business as usual, it doesn't change anything we do.

"The comments on our Facebook are all talking about karma and warnings."
