    Suspected Poacher Torn to Pieces by Lion Pack in South African Park

    Suspected Poacher Torn to Pieces by Lion Pack in South African Park, 02/12/2018

    A suspected poacher was eaten alive by lions close to the Kruger National Park in South Africa, leaving behind little more than the man’s head, police said on Monday.

    The remains were discovered this past weekend in the bushes of the Ingwelala Private Nature Reserve near Hoedspruit, a town located in the Limpopo province of South Africa, where an increasing number of animals have been poached in recent years. <SNIP>

    The police assume the man was a poacher because he allegedly intruded on the reserve and a loaded hunting rifle was found near his remains Saturday morning. Lion body parts are used in traditional medicine, called “muti,” in South Africa. The word “muti” is derived from the Zulu word Umuthi, which means “tree.”

    [Victim’s identity is still trying to be determined by police.]

      Maybe they knew there was nothing worth eating in there?

        …but then thought that would be cruel and humiliating, so they left it as a warning…

      8. I knew there would be a good use for poachers someday.

      Fuck all poachers and bloodthirsty fucking humans.

      That is all.

      I used to be Navarth at DU. I left DU when it became polluted with Hillary pushers. The party bosses fucked us, and Bernie, just like they did with Henry Wallace in 1944.

      12. He died doing what he loved. But probably not instantly.

      There I said something nice.

      Oh sweety, no just no, when I or those of us here talk about the ultra rich - it is NOT you! Not you by a longshot, oh my God did you think...no way you actually thought we meant you? Lord, this country is full of rich stupid people and you seem to be one of the worst. No sweety, you are just a low paid pawn to those ultra rich we talk about. They are wrecking the world, you are an enabler and I understand not being able to sleep at night. I wouldn't either, selling out our future. You have kids right?

        …is to never enter the preserve without a giant bag of “happy herb.” Just seems safer.

      I wouldn’t spend too many resources finding his identity… I am sure his poacher friends got the message..

        23. Gotta' Wonder…

        …if *they* were the ones who turned on him and left him there so the lions would take the blame.

        Don’t mistake my cynicism about news for a love of poaching, though. I’m just sad it wasn’t a member of Club Trump.

          25. Good point..

          a hit amongst poaching rivals, remember there is “no honor amongst thieves” right  – no evidence to be found.. brilliant!!

      35. And when the poor bastard arrived in Hell……

      Cerberus did the same thing to him down here that the lions did up there. I think I might make this a regular thing with poachers.

      Fuck Kamala Harris. Fuck Borey Crooker. Fuck Joy Reid. And FUCK Hillary Clinton & her husband for destroying the Demoncratic Party.
