Lions attack South African ‘poacher’ leaving only his head

A suspected poacher was mauled to death and eaten by a container of lions in South Africa, leaving behind only his conduct and a few remains.

What was left of the victim was found close to Kruger National Park over the weekend, AFP reports.

The stays were found in a wooded area at a private diversion park nearby Hoedspruit, where animals have been increasingly poached in the last few years.

A sport purloin was found nearby the physique Saturday morning, police told the outlet. They are still trying to endorse the victim’s identity.
