Wow…talk about karma, a poacher goes out in search of a lion to illegally hunt and ends-up as a dinner for the big cats. The man was in search of the lions, when the pride actually attacked the poacher suddenly. He was then mauled to death by the pride of lions. The incident happened in the province of Limpopo during the weekend of Feb 10, 2018.
The group of lions who killed the poacher were at the Kruger National Park. Kruger National Park, in northeastern South Africa, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. Its high density of wild animals includes the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo’s.
Hundreds of other mammals make their home here, as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles and storks. Mountains, bush plains and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.
The group of lions actually attacked and killed the poacher at the Kruger National Park at the Hoedspruit private game park. The lions ate most of the body parts of the poacher and only left the head of him.
My only hope, is that now there are man-eating lions on the reserve, that the authorities don’t go out in search of the lions in question and destroy them.
