After finding only a skull and a pair of pants, it looks like a suspected rhino poacher was killed by an elephant and then eaten by lions in South Africa.
South African National Parks says the victim and four other men were trying to poach a rhino this week. The victim’s family say the man’s accomplices called them to say he had been trampled to death by an elephant.
After searching for the man, a skull and a pair of pants were found. Rangers say that man was more than likely eaten by lions. An investigation is underway.
