Lions kill suspected rhino poachers who sneaked onto South African reserve
Mr Fox said it was not clear exactly how numerous men there were, as there was "not much left of them".
It's unclear whether the incident is the same as the one being investigated by the Eastern Cape police following the discovery of suspected human skeletal remains on a game farm in the Kenton on Sea area. After immediately alerting the police, the staffers made a decision to continue their investigation the next morning as it was getting dark.
"They were armed with high-powered rifles with silencers and an axe for the horns and wire cutters and side arms and they had enough food with them to last for many days", noted Fox.
A vet then had to tranquilise the six lions so police could go inside and recover the remains of the mauled poachers.
Police spokeswoman Captain Mali Govender said: "We do not know identities but firearms have been taken by the police and will be sent to the ballistics laboratory to see if they have been used in poaching before". An investigation will continue.
Mr Fox said one of the reserve's anti-poaching dogs had alerted her handler that something was amiss.
"They strayed into a pride of lions - it's a big pride so they didn't have too much time", Mr Fox told AFP news agency. Lions are often active at night, so the noise didn't raise suspicions.
Also recovered were hunting rifles and axes - proof that they were after the threatened species.
