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.]
