I'll refrain from posting gruesome photos of dead or dying rhinos with their horns hacked off.
Swipe to go to another post.
More links to the story, for those who are interested and can't access the one provided.
piper thank you for the links. Just hope all poachers got eaten so they don't come back and shoot the lions.
Lions gotta eat too. Hope the poachers were tasty.
No shame at all. They got what the deserved and the lions had a good meal.
Yeah, but I'm sure some people would consider that view "unChristian" or abhorrent. Rhinos are just animals, and humans are worthy of much more consideration...except those times when they aren't.
Perhaps, but some humans are animals!
Technically, all humans are animals of course. Many humans are slightly more refined than their fellow mammals, and seems to me...many are not.
An accurate observation. :)
People who shoot animals especially endangered animals deserve whatever horrible things happen to them.
No...not a shame at all.
They probably suffered less than their victim(s) would have.
I hope the lions took their time and anyone accompanying heard theirs screams and are forever scarred.
The m* website first wanted me to obey.
Then it wouldn't give me the full story. As far as I know: Animals 1 goal from a penalty shot. **** American news sites... Makes me wanna nuke them all.
I'm not sure just what you mean, Zonkey. I know that some print publications only allow a certain amount of free access to their online articles per month, and I can't criticize them for that.
The other links with the "story" do not require anything, except maybe opting out of something.
Throw some shrimp on the barby...It'll be alright.
There once were three poachers from Parma,
Much stricken with fear and alarma,
When lions approached,
Who quickly then broached
The subject of poachers' grim karma.
I don't have much sympathy for law breakers..some less than others..
Actions have consequences...hope the lions didn't get heartburn..
Well, I can muster some sympathy for people who just do something goofy and end up dead.
This though...I hope they don't, too.
Can't feel sorry for murderers.
poachers are not hunters
just like drug dealers are not pharmacists
Although some hunters are also guilty of "poaching", there is nothing about this post that suggests them being the same.
Although some hunters are also guilty of "poaching",
they are called VIOLATORS
which is against the LAW
I did meet a woman around 85/86 years of age
she was busted for "cattle rustling" she shot a cow
she went to jail, in court it was found out she had 4 kids an her husband had died
back then there was no welfare
the farmer who owned the cow ended up hiring the woman to work the cow barn
that was just out of Lawton Oklahoma
I know for sure that some "hunters" are also guilty VIOLATING the LAW in their hunting practices.
The only thing that concerns me is that I don't want the lions to be considered man eaters and are now a threat to humans.
Otherwise, 'Nature fighting back' is always a good story.
From everything I've read about this particular instance, the lions are not in danger of being considered a "threat".
That is wonderful news. Unfortunately, as with Timothy Treadwell, that is not always the case. People get too close to these animals, tragedy happens, and the animals get the short end of the stick.
Thank you for letting me know. They are such beautiful creatures.
If they're legal, they have to pay a hefty sum to hunt animals as it helps these places, Though I dont get the satisfaction of killing for sport.
Neither do I understand how anyone could get pleasure out of killing, whether it's legal or not. Poaching, by definition, is not legal, of course.
Sounds like it was krama.
Red in tooth and claw!))
Can't open the link they want money, so from yur words I think lions attacked poachers - Good lions I hope the poachers were torn limb from limb.
That is why I provided those other links there at the top in a comment, Lorraine, because some publications only allow a limited number of free views of their online articles.
Yes... poachers came on a reserve with the intent to hack off rhino horns, and some were killed by lions.
Well, they wanted a piece of the action!
Ah yes...some who were intent on inflicting suffering and death on another creature for profit ended up in pieces. ha ha.....
