These three poachers went from the hunters to the hunted from predator to prey.
Most of us are thoroughly disgusted by poachers. But the lions actually found them pretty tasty.

Africa is a little different. Especially in the wild. The police are not the greatest threat you need to fear there. The predators are.
One head and a number of bloodied body parts and limbs have been recovered from the area, along with three pairs of empty shoes.
Three pairs of empty shoes. That phrase paints a stark picture, doesn’t it?
Owner Nick Fox, 60, said: ‘We found enough body parts and three pairs of empty shoes which suggest to us that the lions ate at least three of them but it is thick bush and there could be more.

Yeah, sure. I suppose. But something like this has a Darwin Award aspect to it. You’re there, camping out in the African wilderness for several days, intending to slaughter an entire herd… and it doesn’t occur to anybody that THEY could be the prey animal in this scenario?
Someone will mourn for the loss of life of these poachers, to be sure.
But we wonder, will any of our readers be among them?
