Only a skull and a pair of trousers remained after a suspected rhino poacher was killed by an elephant and then eaten by lions in Kruger National Park, South African National Parks said.

The incident happened after the man entered the park Monday with four others to target rhinos, according to a parks service statement.

An elephant "suddenly" attacked the alleged poacher, killing him, and "his accomplices claimed to have carried his body to the road so that passersby could find it in the morning. They the vanished from the Park," police said.

His family were notified of his death late Tuesday by his fellow poachers, and a search party set out to recover the body. Rangers scoured on foot and police flew over the area, but because of failing right it could not be found.

It's as if they've organized. In addition, it's happening across species. one type helping another...they're becoming diversified so to speak.

9. A family once had a father. Now, they have a skull and a pair of trousers.

Before his flesh had finished digesting in some lion's gut, the suddenly missing link in the supply chain from the African plain to the Chinese apothecary has already been replaced and is stalking his prey.

Demand for rhino horn is not diminished by this death.

Poetic justice. I wonder if the elephant recognized him from previous trips? Sure hope they enjoyed that meat!! Sorry to sound so cold, but animal abusers are as low as child abusers in my book.
