Lions kill poachers illegally hunting rhinos in South Africa

These lions mauled to death alleged rhino poachers in South Africa.

The game reserve is one of the most popular in the Eastern Cape, and it is visited by many British tourists.

Field guides on a game drive Tuesday evening reported that they'd discovered human remains as well as other items "in the immediate vicinity of the lions". He also said that it was found three pairs of shoes, and the lions had to inject a tranquilizer to pick up human remains. "They use the rifle to shoot the animal and the axe to remove the horn".

The night guard heard a noise from the fenced area with six lions, but did not respond to this, since lions are often noisy night in the cage.

"At Sibuya Game Reserve, we only view game from specialised game-viewing vehicles and not on foot due to the extremely dense bush and this forest on the reserve", Fox said. Instead, they met their own demise when a pride of lions attacked and killed them.

However, Fox said, after an initial investigation, it appeared the dog had been alerted by something else that was out of the ordinary coming from the pride of lions inside the park.

Canada's trade deficit in goods widened in May
OTTAWA-Canada's trade deficit widened in May as automotive exports fell and aircraft imports from the USA rose sharply. Total non-US imports were Can$18.5 billion, with the largest increases coming from China, Belgium and Germany.

The lions were shot with tranquilizer darts to protect reserve employees and police who were involved in the recovery effort on Wednesday.

Fox said he alerted the Indalo Anti-Poaching Cluster and the local police, which are now combing the area for clues.

The police also recovered the team's hunting gear in thick, thorny brush near the group of lions, including a high-powered rifle with a silencer and an ax, which was presumably for removing the horns of rhinos after killing them.

"Although we will continue to be extremely vigilant we remain positive that this incident will not necessitate any changes to the status quo", he said.

According to the South African reports, the Eastern Cape has become a "hotbed for Rhino poaching with nine Rhinos already taken by the poachers this year".
