Suspected rhino poacher killed by elephant and then eaten by lions, police say

A suspected rhino poacher in South Africa was killed by an elephant before his body was apparently devoured by lions, authorities said. A search team in Kruger National Park was only able to recover a skull and a pair of pants.

South African National Parks said Friday that the victim and four accomplices were trying to poach a rhino Tuesday evening. The accomplices called the victim's family and said he had been killed by an elephant.

An initial search party was unable to locate the body. During a search Thursday morning, authorities found the few remains of the suspected poacher. "Indications found at the scene suggested that a pride of lions had devoured the remains," the park service said.

The South African Police Service said two of his alleged accomplices were arrested with rifles and ammunition in their possession.



Amazing story -- I wish all the poachers suffer the same fate.

8. While this post lasts...

I know you're not in control of this, but since the U.S. is the SECOND biggest consumer of illegal animal products, I'd say any news in this realm is of national importance.
