In South Africa the lions ate the poachers


"Clearly the poachers had walked into a pride of six lions and some, if not all had been killed", Fox said.

These lions mauled to death alleged rhino poachers in South Africa.

A Park employee said that the alleged poachers broke into the reserve at night with 1 for July 2.

At this stage in the investigation, it is not known how many poachers were killed in the incident.

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

They later learned the noise was likely the poachers being killed by lions. They were "armed with, amongst other things, a high powered rifle with a silencer, an ax, wire cutters and had food supplies for a number of days", according to a press release.

Mr Fox said: "The lions may have eaten more of them it is hard to tell as the area is very thick with bush and you can not be sure what they have taken off to feed on elsewhere".

"One of our anti-poaching dogs alerted her handler at about 4:30 a.m. Monday morning that something was amiss", owner Nick Fox said in a statement on the reserve's Facebook page.

While no one can not be sure what the unauthorized party of hunters might have been doing, "We're nearly 100% sure this is connected to rhino poaching", Fox told Fox News.

Following the attack, the lions were shot with a anesthetized dart so forensic teams could sift through the immediate area for further clues.

After ensuring the lions were not a threat to tourists, Fox said there will not be any changes to "the status quo of our lions".

Captain Govender said: "We do not know identities but firearms have been taken by the police and will be sent to the ballistics laboratory to see if they have been used in poaching before". According to The South African, there have already been nine rhinos killed this year in the Eastern Cape alone, and investigators have reason to believe that there are two groups of poachers responsible for the killings.
