A suspected rhino poacher has been trampled on by an elephant then eaten by a pride of lions in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
Accomplice poachers told the victim’s family that he had been killed by an elephant on Tuesday. Relatives notified the park ranger.
A search party struggled to find the body but eventually found a human skull and a pair of trousers on Thursday.
Kruger National Park has an ongoing problem with poaching and there remains a strong demand for rhino horn in Asian countries.
