Lions Eat Poacher

I love this. Nice to see some good news now and then.

South African lions eat 'poacher', leaving just his head

Image

A suspected big cat poacher has been eaten by lions near the Kruger National Park in South Africa, police say.

The animals left little behind, but some body parts were found over the weekend at a game park near Hoedspruit.

"It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions," Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP.

"They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left his head and some remains."

Police have not yet established the victim's identity. A loaded hunting rifle and ammunition were found next to the body, South African website Eyewitness News reports.

I guess you weren't too simba-thetic to him.

Groan.

I agree with Gunda. I couldn't care less if lions eat Zuma. I didn't care that he has 8 wives (or whatever number it is, I can't remember) but he's as corrupt as they come and needs to go. I just fear that, as seems to be the tradition in Africa, his replacement will be just as corrupt.

EDIT: As I type this, the ANC has just formally asked Zuma to resign. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-43039928
