Suspected Poacher Mauled by Lions
The man's exact motives for trespassing at the reserve are not yet known, but he was killed in a region known for rhino poaching.
The body of what authorities suspect was a poacher was found mauled by a pride of lions in South Africa last Friday.
According to local reports, much of the male body was eaten, making it difficult to identify. However, nearby, a hunting rifle and ammunition were found.
The man's body was discovered inside Ingwelala Private Nature Reserve, a private game reserve near the famed Kruger National Park, in northeastern South Africa. Because the man was allegedly intruding on the reserve and found with weapons, authorities believe he was there for poaching.
Whether he was there to specifically poach lions can't be determined without more direct evidence.
