AFP.comA suspected poacher was mauled to death and eaten by a pack of lions close to the Kruger National Park in South Africa, police said Monday, adding that little was left of the victim’s body. The remains were found at the weekend in the bush at a private game park near Hoedspruit in the northern province of Limpopo, where animals have been poached in increasing numbers over recent years. “It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions. They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left his head and some remains,” Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP. A loaded hunting rifle was found near the body on Saturday morning. Police are trying to establish the victim’s identity. Last year, several lions were found poisoned near a farm in the same province with their heads and paws sawn off. Lion body parts are used in traditional medicine.
When it comes to animals attacking humans in the long and storied history of animal attack blogs on SportSmasher.com, normally, I’m on team human. However, in this scenario where a poacher snuck into Kruger National Park to illegally kill animals only to be mauled to death and eaten by a pride of lions, the poacher got what he deserved. In fact, the only fate that I would find more justifiable for a poacher would be if a hyena ripped off and ate his reproductive organs, forcing the poacher to live the rest of his life as a unic. Hyenas will neuter you if you let your guard down, look what this hyena did to this poor water buffalo, tore his nuts clear off for a meal:
