Rhino poacher trampled by elephants then eaten by lions

Who says there is no good news in the world these days?

Park authorities in South Africa said they recovered the remains of a suspected rhino poacher they believe was killed by an elephant before his remains were devoured by a pride of lions earlier this week.

In a statement released by South African National Parks on Friday, the park service said the family of the victim said they were informed of his death by his alleged accomplices.

The family said they were told the victim had been “killed by an elephant” while he and his alleged accomplices were in Kruger National Park, which is located in northeastern South Africa and is one of Africa’s largest game reserves, to poach rhino on Tuesday.

The family then notified local police, who arranged a search party shortly thereafter, the park service said.

1. Sometimes there is justice

and then other times there is a rare alignment of something to come up with things like this that make karma look like a child. Absolutely lovely.

5. Kinda makes me laugh

But the driving forces of poaching rhinos are poverty and eastern medicine. If there weren't a demand for rhino horns, there would be no reason to kill them. Poachers are usually desperately poor and rhino horn sells for $60K per kilo.

18. I can't think of a better fate for this guy than that he ended his days as lion shit.

Potential poachers: take note! This could happen to you! Go get a real job, you motherfuckers!
