At Least 2 Rhino Poachers Eaten By Lions On South African Game Reserve
At least 2, possibly even 3 rhino poacher's remains have been found in the Sibuya reserve, near the south-east town of Kenton-on-Sea,
"[The poachers] strayed into a pride of lions - it's a big pride so they didn't have too much time," Sibuya reserve owner Nick Fox told AFP news agency. "We're not sure how many there were - there's not much left of them."
The BBC news reports that "In China, Vietnam and elsewhere, rhino horn is erroneously believed to have medicinal properties, even though it is made from the same material as human fingernails."
A rifle and an axe were also found near the lions.
Fair game, or not? Many people had some pretty funny opinions on the matter:

Devastating news that 3 rhino poachers have been killed & eaten by lions in a South African game reserve.. I do hope the poor lions didn’t suffer indigestion.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 5, 2018
What's that expression about walking into the lion's den again?
