SOUTH AFRICA: Lions Eat Three Rhino Poachers

More than one alleged poacher thought to be killed by lions

More than 7,000 have been killed in South Africa in the past decade.

Sibuya Game Reserve owner Nick Fox said in a statement that anti-poaching dogs alerted reserve staff that "something was amiss" in the early morning hours of July 2.

Fox said he suspected more than one person was attacked by the lions - based on the evidence found on the scene.

When members of the anti-poaching unit investigated, they recovered human remains, a high-powered rifle with a silencer, wire cutters, an axe and three pairs of shoes.

Three suspected poachers have been mauled to death by a pride of lions at a game reserve in the Eastern Cape.

He added, however, that the clothing strewn around the scene points to there being at least three.

"The only body part we found was one skull and one bit of pelvis, everything else was completely gone", he said.

The reserve is still open to guests.

The pair, who recently made their relationship official and have both said they love each other, looked thrilled to see other. Dani later confronted Jack about his past with Ellie, telling him some of what Ellie had told her was "not nice to hear".

Fox said an anti-poaching team arrived on the scene Tuesday and alerted local law enforcement to the remains.

One day later, one of the reserve's rangers then stumbled upon the remains of the poachers.

Police declined to speculate if those killed were in fact poachers, but the recovered weapons were sent for testing to establish if they had been used in any other known poaching crimes, according to the Herald Live. On Wednesday, Sibuya employees and police found the poachers' gear scattered through the thick bushes.

Captain Mali Govender, a police spokesperson, revealed that detectives are investigating the incident to determine exactly how many people were eaten.

The search party also enlisted the assistance of a helicopter to locate any survivors.

The intruders are thought to have entered the lion enclosure of the Sibuya Game Reserve, near the Eastern Cape town of Kenton-on-Sea, late Sunday night or early Monday morning.

Due to its prominence and collection of animals, the park has faced multiple break-ins by poachers in recent years.

In 2016 the reserve lost three rhinos when poachers got into the park and shot them dead for their ivory horns.
