Lions reportedly devour suspected poacher in South Africa:

South African police are trying to identify a suspected poacher who was reportedly killed and partially devoured by lions in a private game reserve near the Kruger National Park.

The man’s mauled remains, including his head, were reportedly found today alongside a hunting rifle and ammunition.

The hunter was dressed wrong for lion hunting. He should have been wearing a clown costume. Lions leave them alone because they "taste funny".

This is a very unusual conversation.

I turn the channel when animals eat other animals. I know it happens, but it makes me sad. An animal killing a human, no matter what he did, is not something I could celebrate.

I think this may be an estrogen vs. testosterone thing.

That is a funny remark but a bite from a lion might be rather fatal even if that morsel tastes funny.

Poaching in game preserves in Africa is all too common. I am glad the lions got him.

Ditto!
I agree with you 100% and will never understand how someone can call this a sport.

Is there anyone out there on the TOTV site that knows about the "canned hunt" location the Morse's have in Ocala or any details regarding it???
Sadly (very sadly) it does exist!

In my estimation, this is as bad or worse than the lions mauling that illegal hunter.

I was leaning toward agreeing with Gracie and then you had to come on here and make sense of all this.
