Talk about Karma coming back to get you.

Officials at a South African wildlife reserve report that a group of  hunters out to kill protected rhinos were eaten by a pride of lions after the poachers broke into a protected reserve. Apparently protected by the ravenous lions.

The Herald reports that Nick Fox, owner of the Sibuya Game Reserve, said that reserve employees spotted human remains near a pride of lions at the beginning of the week. The next day, a veterinarian used tranquilizers on the big cats, giving a law enforcement and the reserve’s anti-poaching unit a chance to walk in and investigate.

“That’s when they found the axe, various pieces of clothing, shoes,” Fox said. “Everything was very spread out.”

Authorities say they are not sure how many people the lions ate, but the group must have included at least three people since that’s how many pairs of shoes and gloves were found. Evidence shows that the suspected poachers had come equipped with a high-powered rifle with a silencer, wire cutters, an axe for cutting out the rhino horns, and enough food to last quite some time.
