A suspected big poacher gets taken out by the lions he was hunting
A suspected big cat poacher has been eaten by lions near the Kruger National Park in South Africa, police say.
"It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions," Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP.
"They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left his head and some remains."
Police have not yet established the victim's identity. A loaded hunting rifle and ammunition were found next to the body, South African website Eyewitness News reports.
Lions are hunted for multiple reasons, from big game trophy hunting to out-dated medicinal practices in asian nations. It's barbaric and horrible.
We hate seeing stories like this... but we want to remind you that lions are majestic creatures that deserve better than cowardly poaching.
