Poacher Eaten By Lions, Leaving Only His Head Behind To Send A Message To Other Poachers

There has been very few times when listening to the rules has ever been any fun, but in the case of this lion poacher, obeying the rules would have probably been preferable. Pretty big FML him.

This poacher probably did not expect to become the meal on the day he was out looking for lion parts. According to Survival International, “The difference between poaching and hunting is one of permission. Poaching is hunting without the approval of whoever controls or owns the land.”

And in this case, the lions did not approve... and they definitely controlled the land on this particular day. That much was clear when not much of his body was left behind besides the poacher's head.

A History Of Poaching

The incident took place at the Kruger National Park in South Africa in the northern province of Limpopo. Lion poaching has seen a major increase in Limpopo with a flood of news reports covering it around August of last year. According to Eyewitness News the lions of Limpopo were found with their heads and paws cut off, with other reports even mention lions being poisoned.

Looks like one pack of lions had had just about damn near enough.

But, Why Poach?

So why do poachers do it? One Green Planet discusses the “devastating effects of poaching” saying “Wildlife poaching has negative side-effects that affect local communities, wildlife populations, and the environment. It is a crime fueled by a lucrative black market trade of animal parts. ... Poachers kill for profit.”

Needless to say, another devastating effect is the fact that you put your actual life in danger as this poacher quickly learned. RIP dude, but you should have listened.

murder is defined by one human killing another human, so it doesn't apply to this situation. Here are some, in my opinion, better terms. Justice, Avenger, Warning, Hunting, or(My personal favorite) Extermination.

Children gathered around a campfire, listening to the story. Here comes the dramatic conclusion: "And they only found his head!"

Everyone breaks out in applause at the happy ending.

Because of misplaced political correctness, we cannot clearly identify the problem and name the culprits and the atrocities continue.

CHINESE TRADE IN ANIMAL PARTS FOR THEIR GROTESQUE CHINESE TRADITIONAL MEDICINE.

IT HAS DECIMATED TIGER, LION AND RHINO POPULATIONS IN ASIA AND NOW IN AFRICA! !!

a) black markets in exotic animal parts are not exclusive to china
b) black markets in exotic animal parts are not exclusive to asians, whatever country they live in
c) illegal poaching is not always to supply black markets. remember Cecil?
d) this is a story about one particular, dead poacher. we don't and can't know exactly who he was selling too. which isn't even the point of the story.
e) you read a story about a poacher getting eaten by the animals he was hunting and your response is "why wuz nobody talking bout dem darn chinese terrorists and their voodoo! damn liberals!"
