And finally… law of the jungle

Poachers who broke into a popular game reserve to hunt rhinos are believed to have been killed and eaten by lions.

The owner of Sibya Game Reserve in Kenton-on-Sea, a coastal town in South Africa, said very little of the men could be recovered, Newsweek reports.

Authorities recovered body parts, three pairs of shoes, wire cutters, high-powered hunting rifles with silencers, and a type of axe used for removing rhino horns.

Park owner Nick Fox said: “The only body part we found was one skull and one bit of pelvis, everything else was completely gone.

“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.”

Mr Fox said the incident was sad but should send a “message” to other poachers.
