Lions have mauled to death suspected poachers who entered a South African wildlife reserve to kill rhinos.

Field guides on a game drive Tuesday evening reported that they'd discovered human remains as well as other items "in the immediate vicinity of the lions". At the same time, the handler heard a loud commotion coming from the lions, which she then suspected was the reasoning behind why the dog got her attention to begin with.

According to Newsweek, reserve owner Nick Fox said that there was evidence the hunters had been eaten alive by the lions between Sunday night and early Monday morning.

"The axe that was found on the scene is what is used to by these poachers to hack off the horn after they kill the animal", he added.

"It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions". Fox said the lions' behavior appeared no different than ever and that the lions "view a game-viewing vehicle containing people as something entirely different from individuals who are walking on the ground".

This has been a strong circuit for me for years, as you can see and my job is try to make the difference. Expanding on the issue, Vettel said: "I don't know what happened but it went a little bit stiff".

"We thought they must have been rhino poachers but the axe confirmed it", Fox said.

After alerting authorities, the reserve's vet tranquilised the lions so that police and anti-poaching units could retrieve the human remains and search for further clues.

Mr Fox, 60, said: 'We found enough body parts and three pairs of empty shoes which suggest to us that the lions ate at least three of them but it is thick bush and there could be more.

After ensuring the lions were not a threat to tourists, Fox said there will not be any changes to "the status quo of our lions".

Police have been patrolling the area in case any of the suspected poachers survived. According to The South African, there have already been nine rhinos killed this year in the Eastern Cape alone, and investigators have reason to believe that there are two groups of poachers responsible for the killings.
