Rhino Poacher Trampled By An Elephant And Then Eaten By Lions

A suspected poacher who was hunting rhino in South Africa was killed by an elephant and his body was devoured by lions, according to Kruger National Park officials. 

The remains of the man, whose identity was not released, was recovered in the Crocodile Bridge section of the park. They knew where to find him after others who were with the poacher called the mans family to let them know what happened. The family called the Park Ranger and they put out a search party. Evidence at the scene suggested a pride of lions had eaten the body, "leaving only a human skull and a pair of pants," according to officials.

The other accomplices were arrested at the scene. Kruger National Park has an ongoing problem with poaching and there remains a strong demand for rhino horn in Asian countries.
