Poacher Killed by Elephant and Eaten by Lions in South Africa
By Stephanie Pappas, Live Science Contributor
A suspected rhino poacher in South Africa’s Kruger National Park was killed by an elephant last week, park officials have announced. Lions then scavenged the poacher’s remains.
“This is always disappointing to see,” tweeted Sabah Ibrahim, a naturalist and environmental educator. “The demand for rhino horn comes from extremely wealthy consumers who almost never face any form of justice, and the poachers themselves are more often than not desperate people existing in crushing post-colonial poverty.” [In Photos: The Last 5 Northern White Rhinos]
