Pride Of Lions Eats Group Of Poachers Alive In South African Game Reserve

Staff at the South African reserve found the bloodied head and limbs of poachers who broke in to hunt rhinos.


Over the last few years, the Sibuya Game Reserve in South Africa has faced several intrusion by poachers attracted to the reserve’s vast diversity of animals.


Now, in what some are calling an act of nature’s karma, a group of poachers who broke into the reserve to hunt rhinos has been devoured by a pack of hungry lions.
The park’s owner, Nick Fox, believes that the groups of poachers were eaten alive by the pride of lions sometime between the evening of July 1 and the early morning of July 2.

And so little of their remains were left, investigators weren’t even sure how many people were killed.

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

However, they suspect that it was three men because they found three sets of shoes and gloves. Additionally, typical rhino poaching groups are usually made up of three people.

Sibuya is located in the South African province of Eastern Cape. Within its 30 square miles live the five biggest game animals in Africa: lions, rhinos, elephants, buffalos, and leopards.

Fox reported that one of the reserve’s anti-poaching dogs gave a warning that something was wrong at around 4:30 a.m. on July 2. The dog’s handler then heard a commotion from the lions but didn’t investigate further since it was typical behavior for that time of the morning.

Later on, one of the reserve’s rangers stumbled upon the bloodied remains. The police were notified and together with Sibuya employees, found gear scattered throughout the bushes. This included a high-powered rifle with a silencer, an ax, and wire cutters “which is a surefire sign of rhino poachers,” Fox said.

There are about 29,000 rhinos in the world and South Africa is home to around 80 percent of them. According to the South African Department of Environmental Affairs, 1,028 rhino were poached across South Africa in 2017.

Rhino horns are appealing to poachers for several reasons. In Southeast Asia, particularly Vietnam, rhino horns are in high demand because they are believed to contain strong medicinal properties, where they can go for as much as $100,000 per kilogram (a little over two pounds). And with horns averaging around two to seven pounds each, a poacher could potentially make up to $300,000 off a single rhino horn.

On the South African black market, the horn of a white rhino reportedly sells for up to $3,000 a pound. And in other areas like China, the demand for rhino horns (which are made of keratin) and ivory from elephants comes from their increased use in carvings for artwork.

Re: Pride Of Lions Eats Group Of Poachers Alive In South African Game Reserve

What are the odds that multiple people with guns that are specifically looking for animals, get ambushed by animals and all eaten - without killing ANY of the attacking animals?

I really feel that these poachers were killed by patrollers/guards and were fed to the lions.

I guess that they could have been newbies on their first poach or something, but come on.....

Re: Pride Of Lions Eats Group Of Poachers Alive In South African Game Reserve

Idk I can see lions doing this. They wouldn't have any reason to lie about that unless trying to deter poaching?

If it isn’t legal to murder a group of men, they might lie about it.
