Justicia Africana, SOSPECHOSO CAZADOR FURTIVO ASESINADO Y COMIDO POR LEONES EN SUDAFRICA JOHANNESBURGO (AFP). Un sospechoso cazador furtivo fue mutilado hasta la muerte y comido por una manada de leones en las cercanías del Parque Nacional Kruger en Sudáfrica, confirmó la policía el lunes, agregando que quedaba poco del cuerpo de la víctima.

Los restos fueron encontrados el fin de semana en el arbusto de una reserva natural cerca de Hoedspruit en la provincia norteña de Limpopo, donde animales han sido cazados en números crecientes durante los últimos años.

" Parece que la víctima estaba cazando furtivamente en el parque privado cuando fue atacada y asesinada por leones. Comieron su cuerpo, casi todo, y solo dejaron su cabeza y algunos restos," Según los dichos del portavoz de la policía de Limpopo a AFP.

Un rifle de caza cargado, fue encontrado cerca del cuerpo en la mañana del sábado. La Policía está intentando establecer la identidad de la víctima.

El año pasado, varios leones fueron encontrados envenenados cerca de una granja en la misma provincia con sus cabezas y patas cortadas.

Partes del cuerpo del león son utilizadas en la medicina tradicional.

Los cazadores furtivos también tienen como objetivo a los rinocerontes de los parques naturales sudafricanos para abastecer la incesante demanda de cuerno de rinoceronte por parte de China, Vietnam, y de otros países asiáticos, donde se cree que tiene cualidades medicinales.

SUSPECTED POACHER KILLED AND EATEN BY LIONS IN SOUTH AFRICA

JOHANNESBURG (AFP) -

A suspected poacher was mauled to death and eaten by a pack of lions close to the Kruger National Park in South Africa, police said Monday, adding that little was left of the victim's body.

The remains were found at the weekend in the bush at a private game park near Hoedspruit in the northern province of Limpopo, where animals have been poached in increasing numbers over recent years.

"It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions. They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left his head and some remains," Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP.

A loaded hunting rifle was found near the body on Saturday morning. Police are trying to establish the victim's identity.

Last year, several lions were found poisoned near a farm in the same province with their heads and paws sawn off.

Lion body parts are used in traditional medicine.

Poachers also often target rhinoceroses in South Africa's game parks to feed a booming demand for rhino horn in China, Vietnam and other Asian countries, where it is believed to have medicinal qualities.
