Environmentalists and those who value nature despise poachers. They rob the environment! They would breach into various sanctuaries and animal preserves and slaughter animals on purpose, some of which were even fighting to survive against extinction. In addition to killing defenceless creatures like rhinos, poachers often steal their ivory horns and other body parts. They are aware that by doing so, they are endangering their lives.
This is what occurred when suspected rhino poachers stormed into a wildlife sanctuary and were confronted by lions who appeared out of nowhere and gave them a lesson that no poacher would soon forget.
The South African game reserve was broken into two or three individuals. They were looking for rhinos so they could kill them and take their horns. However, lions charged at them and devoured the poachers before they could hurt the rhinos, stopping them from carrying out their heinous deeds.
Shibuya Game Reserve owner Nick Fox shared the tragic conclusion of this group of poachers who broke into his land reserve. Early in July, this took place at a land preserve close to Kenton-on-the-Sea.
The individuals, according to sources, were armed and were in possession of at least one powerful weapon with a silencer. Some of them also include food supplies and an axe. They wanted to shoot the rhinos, kill them, and then remove their horns with an axe.
Unfortunately, although it is not legal, this behaviour is unethical. In exchange for a sizable sum of money, poachers kill the animal and only steal a portion of their corpses.
However, it doesn’t matter to these poachers whether they are breaking the law or not. They just care about making money by offering these horns for sale on the illicit market. They had no idea that they were endangering these animals. This is when the men encountered a pride of lions, who weren’t even meant to be there.
The only body pieces that were discovered, according to Fox, were a skull and a small portion of a pelvic. He said that everything had vanished totally and that there was so little remained that it was unclear how many people had died. Due to the discovery of three pairs of shoes and three additional pairs of gloves throughout their search, they have reason to believe that there were three poachers.
Fox heard a loud roar coming from the lions at about 4:30 in the morning. He never really gave it much attention, though, because these lions may be boisterous and active at times. Twelve hours later, when the team finally got a chance to look at it, they discovered these men’s bones. These poachers undoubtedly had no idea what they were getting themselves into.
Sadly, poaching still occurs. The most recent report claims that 87 elephants were killed just for their ivory horns. When counting elephants in Botswana, a routine overhead scan revealed the greatest elephant killing ever seen. The heads of all 87 elephants were found severed from their shoulders. Under the undergrowth, the poachers attempted to conceal the dead elephants.
Stopping poaching in African nations is necessary. To assist them, we should raise awareness. Let’s take advantage of the internet to stop these poachers from killing defenceless animals for money!
