Rhino poachers eaten by lions in South Africa

More than one alleged poacher thought to be killed by lions

It's possible that more than three poachers were killed, he added. Staff members heard a commotion coming from the area where lions are kept and, suspecting that the lions' activity had disturbed the dog, did not immediately investigate further.

Nick Fox, the owner of the reserve, said rangers also found a "high powered rifle with a silencer, an ax, wire cutters and. food supplies for a number of days", in a press release shared on Facebook.

The remains were strewn over an area covered with thick brush and Fox said it was impossible to know how many people were killed.

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

A gang of poachers have been eaten by lions after breaking into a South African game reserve to slaughter a herd of rhinos.

Fox said he thinks the poachers got onto the reserve on Sunday night or early Monday morning.

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

Police have not identified the slain humans, and they're testing the rifle to determine whether they were poachers.

"While we are saddened at any loss of life the poachers came here to kill our animals and this sends out a very clear message to any other poachers that you will not always be the victor".

"The firearm has been taken by police and will be sent to the ballistics laboratory to establish if it has been used in any other poaching or crimes". None have been found at the time this article was published.

It's unclear whether the incident is the same as the one being investigated by the Eastern Cape police following the discovery of suspected human skeletal remains on a game farm in the Kenton on Sea area.

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 and cut off their horns.
