A poacher was reportedly killed and eaten by the same pride of lions he was hunting while at a private game reserve in South Africa.
The unnamed poacher was heard “screaming for help,” as he was viciously attacked while hunting at the Ingwelala Private Nature Reserve in Hoedspruit outside Phalaborwa.
But the lions quickly killed their victim and devoured most of his body before being chased off, leaving his head untouched.
Police at first thought the dead man was a tractor driver who worked at the game reserve.

Police Lieutenant-Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said: ‘The process of identifying this body has already commenced and it might be made easier as his head was amongst the remains found at the scene’. Continue reading
