Rhino poacher trampled by elephant, eaten by lions

SOUTH AFRICA โ€” A poacher who snuck into a national park in South Africa probably won't be sneaking back out.

That's because he was trampled by elephants, and then served as dinner to a pack of hungry lions, according to BBC.

Apparently, police picked up four poachers running for their lives outside Kruger National Park, according to the Letaba Herald.

Looks as if five poachers were trying to hunt an endangered rhino, when an angry elephant charged and sent one of them six-feet under.

When they learned of the elephant attack, rangers were sent out to search for the man.

It took several days for them to finally locate his bodyโ€”well, what was left of it.

A pride of lions had gotten to the body.

The rangers were able to find some clothes and the guy's dismembered dome.

The Park's managing executive Glenn Phillips reminded people, "entering Kruger National Park illegally and on foot is not wise, it holds many dangers and this incident is evidence of that."
