In a supreme example of poetic justice, a group of poachers who were targeting rhinoceroses in South Africa have been found eaten by lions.

The remains of the poachers were thought to have been killed in the early hours of the morning on Monday 2 July. They had been so severely mauled it was impossible to tell how many poachers were killed, but Nick Fox, who owns the eco reserve where they were found, said, "Judging from the shoes and items found on the sceneā€š I suspect it is about two or maybe three (alleged poachers) who were killed. The remains were scattered over a very wide area making it difficult to comb the scene and get all the evidence."

The items found along with the remains make it quite clear that they were intent on killing rhinos and removing their horns. Fox said, "They were armed with, amongst other things, a high-powered rifle with a silencer, an axe, wire cutters and had food supplies for a number of days."

Call it karma or cosmic balancing; all I can say it, good riddance!
