One up for the Animals of Kruger

Two suspected poachers have been arrested and a third is believed to have been killed by a lion in the Kruger National Park (KNP) last week.

According to the two that were caught, they went into the park on the night of March 12 to set up snares to catch animals, they returned the following night to see if they caught anything. On their way back they came across some hippos, which charged them and they ran in different directions. Two of them got out of the park safely.
Rangers found a human skull in the Pretoriuskop section of the park on Saturday. It was believed the third man had been caught and eaten by a lion.

The two men were arrested in Mkhuhlu village, where they lived, near Hazyview. They were known and wanted by the police for poaching.
