Now that's what I call teamwork , nature in action !

The group of poachers had entered South Africa's Kruger National Park with the intention of killing a few rhino and bagging some rhino horn but according to his accomplices who informed the family of the suspected poacher's death he was killed by an elephant , a search party found nothing but a human skull and a pair of trousers on Thursday , it's believed his body was taken by lions.
The circle of life.


The managing executive of the park extended his condolences to the family.

"Entering Kruger National Park illegally and on foot is not wise," he said. "It holds many dangers and this incident is evidence of that."

Kruger National Park has an ongoing problem with poaching and there remains a strong demand for rhino horn in Asian countries.

On Saturday, Hong Kong airport authorities seized the biggest haul of rhino horn in five years, valued at $2.1m (£1.6m).

No condolences from me , +1 to the elephants and lions.

I love to see when people reap the rewards of their hard work. Making it a team effort is The icing on the cake. Somebody should have a party for the elephants though since they did the grunt work and it appears that the lions walked off with the entire buffet, those nice little kitties owe the elephants.

I blame the buyers of the poached animals, namely wealthy Chinese who will pay what the impoverished poachers consider a fortune for the animals tusks and such.

Where there is a demand there is supply. It’s the Chinese who need to let go of their superstitious medicine.

Agreed , that is the root of the evil which will persist until the market for ivory and horn is ended , more pressure needs to be put on Far Eastern countries to end the trade in their superstition medicines and ivory trinkets.

Love it. It's just a shame the elephant killed him before he was eaten by the lions. Would have preferred that he was just immobilised by the elephant (like broken back) and then eaten alive, but you can't have everything, I suppose.

I find it hard in this day and age of education and enlightenment to believe

that people still believe these things especially with available medication. As

far as I understand it isnt rhino horn a supposed cure for errection problems?

It was a good opener for the day. I just logged on and opened this thread first.

As a Cliff Claven aside its a little known fact that the rhino horn once believed to be compacted hair is actually keratin protein through and through and is more similar to the beak of a turtle or a hoof.

The trade market for the horns is for medicine in Asia and to make dagger handles in the middle east though the import of horns there has been illegal since the eighties.

I shouldn't laugh but I did when I read that all they found was a skull and a pair trousers.

They ate his shirt and shoes and socks?

I am guessing the other poachers must have seen him get killed by the elephant and took off? Otherwise, I have no idea how finding a skull and trousers would tell them that unless the skull was pancaked. The lion thing appears to be speculative. Could have been hyenas or whatever. In any case it seems nature took care of itself this round.

I think that's likely the case , I'm guessing they believe it was lions as so little was left.
Tasty poacher.

Poaching isn't the root of anything. It's just a symptom of everything that's wrong with human "civilization".

Can't really blame a poacher for poaching any more than you can blame a doctor for being a parasite upon the body of a sick man.
