  • Alleged rhino poachers mauled to death by lions in South Africa

The remains belonged to a suspected group of rhino poachers, according to Nick Fox, owner of the Sibuya Game Reserve in South Africa.

During the late-evening or early-morning hours of July 1 or July 2, a group of at least three poachers entered the South African safari park. During that time, the dog's handler heard a loud commotion coming from the lions.

The handler was unconcerned because it is not unusual for the lions to make noise, Fox added.

"However, it now appears likely that the dog had been alerted by something else out of the ordinary coming from the lions", Fox said.

"They were armed with, amongst other things, a high powered rifle with a silencer, an axe, wire cutters and had food supplies for a number of days - all the hallmarks of a gang intent on killing rhino and removing their horns", said Fox. But the reserve's anti-poaching unit later noticed human remains near the lions Tuesday.

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

He says the reserve's wildlife veterinarian darted the lions so that police forensic investigators could search for evidence.

"At Sibuya Game Reserve, we only view game from specialised game-viewing vehicles and not on foot due to the extremely dense bush and this forest on the reserve", Fox said.
