Pride of lions kill suspected rhino poachers on game preserve

"As it was already dark it was not possible to investigate the area until first light at which time we arranged for our vet to dart the entire pride of lions so that Police forensic teams assisted by our Anti-poaching unit could comb the immediate area for clues", Fox wrote on Facebook.

Lions have mauled to death suspected poachers who entered a South African wildlife reserve to kill rhinos.

Rangers discovered the remains of two, possibly three, people in a lion enclosure in the Sibuya reserve, near the south-east town of Kenton-on-Sea.

According to Newsweek, reserve owner Nick Fox said that there was evidence the hunters had been eaten alive by the lions between Sunday night and early Monday morning.

A May 2018 "60 Minutes" report revealed that they are being slaughtered at the shocking rate of three a day at the hands of poachers like the group killed in Sibuya. "They use the rifle to shoot the animal and the axe to remove the horn". He also said that it was found three pairs of shoes, and the lions had to inject a tranquilizer to pick up human remains.

"It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions".

"However, it now appears likely that the dog had been alerted by something else out of the ordinary coming from the lions", Fox said.

Although we will continue to be extremely vigilant we remain positive that this incident will not necessitate any changes to the status quo of our lions. She said, "We do not know identities, but firearms have been taken by the police and will be sent to the ballistics laboratory to see if they have been used in poaching before".

While no one can not be sure what the unauthorized party of hunters might have been doing, "We're nearly 100% sure this is connected to rhino poaching", Fox told Fox News.

Nine rhinos were killed by poachers in Eastern Cape province, where the reserve is located, this year alone.
