Default Lions kill suspected poacher in South Africa

A pride of lions have killed a suspected poacher, according to managers of a wildlife area in South Africa. The Umbabat Private Nature Reserve said the man was killed last week and that two sets of human tracks were found nearby, suggesting the alleged poacher had companions who escaped.

I hope they aren't forced to kill the lions because of this.

crocoduck, I think they were just preemptively killing the lion in the first place.
