"Clearly, the poachers had walked into a pride of six lions and some, if not all had been killed", according to a Facebook post by Fox.

These lions mauled to death alleged rhino poachers in South Africa.

The game reserve is one of the most popular in the Eastern Cape, and it is visited by many British tourists.

"The anti-poaching unit never suspected anything wrong because it was the lions making noise and not the rhinos", Fox said. These things usually carry hunters of the rhinoceros that killed them and cut off their horns.

Fair game? Hunting hunters for Rhinos died for hunting and ate by lions Men entered the Sibuya Game Reserve on the armed southeast coast with a high powered rifle and an ax in the early hours of Monday.

Previous reports suggested that a lone poacher had been attacked, but further investigation of the bad scene suggested at least two people were devoured by the lions.

Mr Fox said: "The lions may have eaten more of them it is hard to tell as the area is very thick with bush and you can not be sure what they have taken off to feed on elsewhere".

Police have been patrolling the area in case any of the suspected poachers survived.

These items included "all the hallmarks of a gang intent on killing rhino and removing their horns", Fox said, including a "high-powered rifle, gloves, wire cutters and the remains of a backpack".

The lions were shot with tranquilizer darts to protect reserve employees and police who were involved in the recovery effort on Wednesday.

Although we will continue to be extremely vigilant we remain positive that this incident will not necessitate any changes to the status quo of our lions.

According to the South African reports, the Eastern Cape has become a "hotbed for Rhino poaching with nine Rhinos already taken by the poachers this year".
