    Default Former poacher feeds lions

    South African lions eat 'poacher', leaving just his head










    Image copyrightCAMERON SPENCER/GETTY IMAGESImage captionLocal police said the lions ate almost all of the man's body (file picture)A suspected big cat poacher has been eaten by lions near the Kruger National Park in South Africa, police say.
    The animals left little behind, but some body parts were found over the weekend at a game park near Hoedspruit.
    "It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions," Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP.
    "They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left his head and some remains."
    Police have not yet established the victim's identity. A loaded hunting rifle and ammunition were found next to the body, South African website Eyewitness News reports.
    Lion poaching has been on the rise in Limpopo province in recent years.
    The big cats' body parts are sometimes used in traditional medicine, both within Africa and beyond.
    Wildlife charity the Born Free Foundation says lion bones and other body parts are increasingly sought-after in South East Asia, where they are sometimes used as a substitute for tiger bones.
    In January 2017, three male lions were found poisoned in Limpopo with their paws and heads cut off.

    I was hoping that the thread title would not disappoint and that wish came true.

    I like to think they left his head because nobody wanted to touch that brain.

    The same should happen to all poachers and trophy hunters.

    I eat farmed animals, I am an omnivore in that regard...but hunting for sport is sadistic to me. Also hunting endangered animals is selfish...I also fear and respect wild animals enough to give them their space...what gets me though, is that the governments in a lot of these African countries have high levels of corruption, South Africa being no exception. Which means that if the price is right, you too can come to their country and poach and if you pay enough someone will do it for you. You can't tell me that they can't keep people out of their countries and stop them from killing these animals...
