Three Rhino Poachers Killed, Eaten By Lions At South Africa Nature Reserve: Report

A gang of poachers who broke into a South Africa wildlife reserve to slaughter rhinos for their horns got the tables turned on them when they were attacked and eaten by a pride of hungry lions.

At least three poachers were reportedly killed by the lions Tuesday at Sibuya Game Reserve, according to the Daily Mail.

Rangers found a human head, along with other body parts and limbs, along with three pairs of empty shoes, the Sunday Times reported. Police have not identified the slain humans.

Staff at Sibuya also found high powered hunting rifles with silencers at the lion camp.

Wire cutters and an axe used by poachers to cut off rhino horns were also found.

Nine rhinos have been shot and killed by poachers so far this year on Eastern Cape reserves.

Three white rhinos were killed by poachers at Sibuya in June 2016, and three other rhinos were killed in May at the nearby Port Alfred Nature Reserves.

A helicopter was called in to search for more possible poachers, but none have so far been found.
