A Poachers Hell: 1 Killed by Lion, 2 Arrested in Kruger Park
Two suspected poachers have been arrested and a third is believed to have been killed by a lion in the Kruger National Park (KNP) last week. According to the two that got caught, the trio went into the park on the night of March 12 to set up snares to catch animals, KNP spokesman William Mabasa said in a statement on Tuesday.
“They returned on the night of the 13th to see if they caught anything. On their way back they came across some hippos, which charged them and they ran in different directions.” Two of them got out of the park safely, but got worried when their friend didn’t return by Tuesday.
The two men were arrested in Mkhuhlu village, where they lived, near Hazyview. They took the police to the spot where they had last seen their accomplice. “Some blood and torn clothing were found.” Rangers found a human skull in the Pretoriuskop section of the park on Saturday. It was believed the third man had been caught and eaten by a lion.
