Pair of trousers all that's left as pride of lions eat poacher

The four poachers who survived were arrested and will appear in court ‘in due course

Four other members of the illegal hunting party were arrested and are expected to appear in court soon.

Park officials told the Letaba Herald that the man entered the park illegally to hunt rhinos but was killed by an elephant. The accomplices called the victim's family and said he had been killed by an elephant.

Police said they seized guns and ammunition from the surviving men.

Only the skull and a pair of trousers of a suspected rhino poacher in South Africa have been recovered by rangers after he was allegedly killed by an elephant in Kruger National Park last week.

The remains of a body were discovered that day. According to police, the men took the poacher's remains to the road, so passerby could find it to the morning, and they left the area, police said.

"Upon their appearance, the court remanded them in custody and will reappear at the same court on April 12, 2019, pending a bail application". An inquest was opened in connection with the dead suspect, Hlathi said.

But there seems to be little appetite in Brussels for an extension that could create another cliff edge in three months. It is a prospect May and many in her Conservative party are anxious to avoid, fearing a backlash from voters.

Kruger National Park managing executive Glenn Phillips offered his condolences to the relatives of the deceased.

According to the Mpumalanga police, the man was a rhino poacher.

Still, people grind up the horn and use it in a drink in a misguided effort to reduce fevers and cure hangovers, among other things. "This is a myth of the Western media and in some parts of Asia is viewed as a kind of anti-Chinese hysteria".

There is an global ban on the trade in rhino horn. "The current prices for a rhino horn are anywhere from $15,000 to $50,000 a kilogram".

According to the group, traditional Chinese medical practice believes the concoction can help treat fever, rheumatism, gout, snakebites, hallucinations, typhoid, headaches, carbuncles, vomiting, food poisoning and "devil possession". This is thought to be a significant factor in driving modern demand. It also houses a larger percentage of the park's rhino population.

The incident took place Tuesday at Kruger National Park and his remains were recovered two days later, officials said.
