And in perhaps the most heartbreaking act of conservation, park rangers in some parts of Africa are preemptively removing rhinos' horns so that poachers won't be tempted to kill the animals for them. "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.

"I think we had a stroke of luck here that the lions got to them before they got to the rhinos", Fox told AFP.

"They were thinking of spending time in the reserve looking for the rhinos", he said.

"But the lions are our watchers and guardians and they picked the wrong pride and became a meal".

Poaching is a major issue on the Eastern Cape with nine rhinos killed by illegal hunters on reserves this year.

Police spokeswoman Captain Mali Govender confirmed that the remains had been found in the lion camp and that detectives were on the scene trying to work out how many were eaten.

Later that morning, at approximately 4:30 a.m., one of the parks anti-poaching dogs alerted its handler that something in the park didn't seem right. "Investigation continues and at this stage we are unable to speculate as to how the remains ended up at the scene".

This is not the first time lions have turned the tables on poachers.

According to Nick Fox, the owner of Sibuya Game Reserve located, near the Eastern Cape Town of Kenton-on-Sea, South Africa, Human Remnants and Poaching tools was found in lion enclosure following the reserve's Specially Trained Anti-dog alert which signifies a mix-up or uncertainty.

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. Instead, they met their own demise when a pride of lions attacked and killed them. Someone had sawn off their heads and paws-body parts used in traditional medicine, like rhino horn.
