Lions eat rhino poachers on South African game reserve

Lions eat rhino poachers on South African game reserve

There are six lions in the pride, which act as "watch-dogs" to help protect the resident rhinos from poachers.

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

The incident happened at the Sibuya Game Reserve sometime between the evening of July 1 and the morning of July 2.

But unlike the chimp's big toe, Selam's is in line with her other toes, similar to toes on a human foot. The Dikika child's foot shows that the toddler already had the bone structure needed to stand and walk.

At this point in the investigation, it's unclear how many poachers were killed by the lions.

"They strayed into a pride of lions - it's a big pride so they didn't have too much time", Sibuya Game Reserve's owner, Nick Fox, told AFP Thursday. 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.

One head and a number of bloodied body parts and limbs have been recovered from the area, along with three pairs of empty shoes.

Although he has played just two games, he's leading the Utah Circuit in points per game with 21.5 and assists per game with 7.5. Jackson had 13 points , six rebounds, one assist and a steal for the Pelicans in 13 minutes of play before being sidelined.

Fox said that he found a high-powered rifle with a silencer, an axe, wire cutters and a backpack filled with water and food supplies near to the site, which led him to suspect that the victims were poachers.

"We thought they must have been rhino poachers but the axe confirmed it", Fox said. 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".

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

We're still waiting for United Kingdom market information specifically, however it won't arrive on sale in Britain until 2019. The vehicle can be operated in 2H front-wheel-drive mode most of the time, maximising fuel economy.

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. Reserve staff immediately called the Association of Eastern Cape Game Reserves Anti-Poaching Cluster and the police. 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.
