Time to move on. Everyone has had ample opportunity to voice their disgust. I blame the powers that be in Africa, he was just doing what he was allowed to do by people who should know better.
If anyone is to blame for all this it is the government that permits trophy hunting.
Love it. Love everything about it. :lol:South African authorities have confirmed that 9 men were killed and 3 others were severely injured when attacked by a pride of lions in the Kruger National Park.
The victims are local poachers who were illegally hunting for Rhinos inside the boundaries of the national park, when they were surprised by a group of almost ten adult Southwest African lions, the same species as Cecil the Lion, who died a few kilometres from the site in July 2015.
The felines’ attack was so sudden and violent, that nine of the fourteen men were killed, three severely injured and two were only lightly injured, while the animals were mostly unhurt. The survivors abandoned their dead comrades on the site and hurried back to a nearby village for medical care, where they were rapidly arrested.
Skukuza’s spokes-person, William Mabasa, told reporters that the poachers were visibly terrified by their experience and he hopes this incident serves as a lesson to other poachers.
The surviving poachers will now face a wide array of criminal charges if they survive their injuries. The charges brought by prosecutors include illegal-hunting, possession of illegal weapons and contravening the Parks and Wildlife Act.
