Pride of lions kill suspected rhino poachers on game preserve

"They came heavily armed with hunting rifles and axes which we have recovered and enough food to last them for several days so we suspect they were after all of our rhinos here", he told the Sun.

We have received many questions relating to the future of the six lions involved in the tragic incident surrounding the killing of suspected poachers.

"They strayed into a pride of lions - it's a big pride so they didn't have too much time", Sibuya Game Reserve's owner, Nick Fox, told AFP Thursday.

"We thought they must have been rhino poachers but the ax confirmed it", Fox said.

An axe and three pairs of shoes and gloves were found later when police and an anti-poaching unit arrived.

At this point in the investigation, it's unclear how many poachers were killed by the lions.

Fox said that he found a high-powered rifle with a silencer, an axe, wire cutters and a backpack filled with water and food supplies near to the site, which led him to suspect that the victims were poachers.

India , who won the first match by eight wickets, started poorly after losing the toss and slumped to 22 for three. Suresh Raina , however, tried to contribute but the Uttar Pradesh batsmen only managed to score 27 runs.

So far this year, nine rhinos have been killed in East Cape Reserves.

"Investigators and specialists combed the scene and managed to retrieve remains, which were taken by the Department of Health to conduct forensic testing", South African Police Service Captain Mali Govender said in a statement. She wasn't concerned because it's not unusual to hear the lions overnight, so she brushed off the commotion.

Later that morning, at approximately 4:30 a.m., one of the parks anti-poaching dogs alerted its handler that something in the park didn't seem right.

This is not the first time lions have turned the tables on poachers.

A group of poachers got an unexpected surprise when they were attacked by a pride of lions after breaking into the Sibuya Game Reserve in South Africa to hunt rhinoceroses earlier this week.

They later learned the noise was likely the poachers being killed by lions. "We're not sure how many there were - there's not much left of them".
