    A pride of lions ate a group of poachers after they broke into a game reserve earlier this week in South Africa to hunt rhinoceroses.

    Three men were believed to have been eaten alive by the predators sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning after they entered the Sibuya Game Reserve in Kenton-on-Sea to hunt rhinos, Nick Fox, the park’s owner, told Newsweek. After the incident, authorities recovered the remains of their parts, three pairs of shoes, wire cutters, high-powered hunting rifles fitted with silencers and a type of ax that is commonly used by poachers to remove rhino horns.

    "The only body part we found was one skull and one bit of pelvis, everything else was completely gone," he said. "There is so little left that they don’t know exactly how many people were killed, we suspect three because we found three sets of shoes and three sets of gloves." Fox also revealed that rhino poaching groups usually consist of three people.
