Default Lions kill rhino poachers before they can poach

https://www-m.cnn.com/2018/07/05/wor...rnd/index.html

A certain irony here: Poachers break in to kill rhinos, but a pride of lions get them first...

It's a pity that they weren't run over by a rhino first, but I'll settle for that.

Tragically, they seem not to have been wearing bodycams.

On afterthought, I tend to think that someone (probably rangers) shot them, and left the carcasses for lion food. Lions are unlikely to have coordinated their attack such as to kill three armed men, unless they panicked and broke, which seems unlikely for professional poachers.

I do hope they dug the bullets out before letting the lions eat them. Don't want anyone chipping a tooth.
