In South Africa the lions ate the poachers

Sandra Phillips | 09 July, 2018, 00:12

The reserve's statement said it is clear the poachers had walked into a pride of six lions and that some of the poachers, if not all, were killed.

The activity was dismissed because this is a time when the lions are usually active, and officials believe this is when the hunters were killed.

According to its website, Sibuya Game Reserve is located on the Sunshine Coast of the Eastern Cape, approximately 130 kms from Port Elizabeth or East London.

The poachers are believed to have intruded into the lion's enclosure of the Sibuya Game Reserve, on Sunday night or early Monday morning hence, devoured by the lions. At the same time he'd heard a commotion coming from the lions so he suspected that's what prompted a reaction from the dog.

An ax and three pairs of shoes and gloves were found later when police and an anti-poaching unit arrived.

Tourist boat accident kills at least 21 in Phuket
The boat, which went down about 7km from shore, was properly registered and had not been overloaded, police said. Some 48 people - passengers and crew - were rescued before the operation was suspended late yesterday.

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. Instead, they met their own demise when a pride of lions attacked and killed them.

"They were armed with high powered rifles with silencers, an axe for the horns, wire cutters and side arms, so were clearly intent on killing rhinos and cutting off their horns". Fox said the lions' behavior appeared no different than ever and that the lions "view a game-viewing vehicle containing people as something entirely different from individuals who are walking on the ground".

Since the incident, police have been patrolling the area on the chance that any of the poachers survived.

He says the reserve's wildlife veterinarian darted the lions so that police forensic investigators could search for evidence.

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. More than 1,000 rhinos were poached in 2017, according to figures from the environment ministry.
