The mostly eaten remains of a man found over the weekend are believed to be the body of a poacher who was apparently attacked and killed by lions at a private game park just outside Kruger National Park in South Africa.

The local Eyewitness News website reports that Limpopo police found a rifle and ammunition next to the body Friday.

“It was reported earlier that authorities thought the body belonged to the driver of a tractor, who had gone missing, but he has since been found alive,” the story reports.

Local police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe is quoted in the media saying: “It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions. They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left his head and some remains.”

Ngoepe added: “We are now waiting for a person from the family but we are also utilizing our investigative resources to see if we can successfully identify the deceased.”

The Home Affairs Department is also working to help identify the man.


  1. Its so nice to see such nature’s own justice taking care of a walking piece of worthless crap …
    it would be nice to see some worthless sons of a certain leader of the country (also hunters
    who love shooting animals in Africa) get the some justice from nature as well (one can only hope!) –

  2. This is great karma.
    Good for the Lions!
    More hunters deserve this karma, for sure.

  3. Including this article in TV Week makes no sense to me. What’s the relevance to TV Week? Just a bit of karmic relief? ????

    • They run items of general interest all the time, and it doesn’t seem to bother most people. If a reader has a problem with it, it’s just that: their problem. I don’t see how it’s worth spending your energy on.

  4. The lions were overheard saying later “Surprisingly, he tastes just like chicken.”
