In South Africa, police say a suspected poacher was eaten by a pride of lions. The poacher was eaten at a big game park in the province of Limpopo. Police say that the lions ate nearly his whole body except for his head and some remains. The police of Limpopo say the poacher was poaching a lion when another lion came up behind the man and attacked him. Although it still isn’t clear the man was an actual poacher, they say he was a poacher since a loaded rifle was found close to his remains. The man’s identity is not known yet and police are still investigating and trying to find out who he is. Poaching, has become more common in Limpopo, because people use lions for medicine as a part of a tradition.

It has not been cleared or specified if the man meant any harm to any of the animals around. Since no one knows who this man is, there have been many people looking at people from home departments to get his history which can then lead them to his residential place. When the remains of the body was found, police thought the body was of a farmer whose tractor broke down. The farmers tractor did break down, but the farmer managed to walk to safety. Police say there will be further news on this investigation a a couple of weeks.
