Lions maul alleged rhino poachers to death

Lions maul alleged rhino poachers to death”

However, Fox said, after an initial investigation, it appeared the dog had been alerted by something else that was out of the ordinary coming from the pride of lions inside the park.

Questions have since been raised over whether the lions, who are among the many species visitors can come close to on safari trips through the park, would now be a danger to humans and have to be put down, reports Daily Mail.

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".

There has been a rise in poaching in Africa in recent years, to feed growing demand for rhino horn in parts of Asia.

The general consensus in the game industry is that lions view a game viewing vehicle containing people as something entirely different from individuals who are walking on the ground.

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

"Judging from the shoes and items found on the scene‚ I suspect it is about two or maybe three". "We lost three rhino in March 2016".

The activity was dismissed because this is a time when the lions are usually active, and officials believe this is when the hunters were killed.

Sibuya reserve owner Nick Fox said in a statement on the reserve's Facebook page that the suspected poachers entered the reserve late on Sunday night or early on Monday morning. "All the hallmarks of a gang intent on killing rhino and removing their horns".

Police spokeswoman Captain Mali Govender confirmed that the remains had been found in the lion camp and that detectives were on the scene trying to work out how many were eaten.

These lions mauled to death alleged rhino poachers in South Africa. Reserve staff immediately called the Association of Eastern Cape Game Reserves Anti-Poaching Cluster and the police. More than 1,000 rhinos were poached in 2017, according to figures from the environment ministry.
