Rhino Poacher Killed By Elephant, Eaten By Lions

The Cast of Lion King London at the Olivier Awards–“Circle of Life”

It’s hard not to feel that a little bit of cosmic justice came into play with this story:

Park authorities in South Africa said they recovered the remains of a suspected rhino poacher they believe was killed by an elephant before his remains were devoured by a pride of lions earlier this week.

In a statement released by South African National Parks on Friday, the park service said the family of the victim said they were informed of his death by his alleged accomplices.

“During this search, which was boosted with a further compliment of Field Rangers, the remains of a body were discovered,” the park service said. “Indications found at the scene suggested that a pride of lions had devoured the remains leaving only a human skull and a pair of pants.”

Yikes.

Our thoughts and prayers to the family of the rhinos. May all game hunters and poachers take note: in this park, the animals hunt back.

Hear that, Don and Eric?
