    Re: Lions eat 'rhino poachers' on South African game reserve

    The transportation of human concepts onto animals seems (leastwise to me) amusing at best and worrisome at worst.

    The lions eating poachers had nothing to do with justice as we (humans) have conceived it for ourselves and was thus not motivated by the lions' regard for rhinos. It was an issue of appetite for meat and its easy presentation.

    Just as hunting down these lions (should that be envisaged) will have nothing to with injustice but rather be a matter of practicality. Specifically because predators that have once sampled human meat so easily obtainable tend to become man-eaters. Either partially or altogether.

    Sibuya game reserve is not closed off to visitors, on the contrary its upkeep is financed by safari guests. Obviously not of the shooter variety but go tell a lion that who's learned that once you've tasted one, you've tasted them all (I mean they could already test three different specimen of the same species).

    Where I have no tolerance for poachers and have lost my taste for hunting (killing) decades ago, I'd hunt those cats down if I were responsible for running the reserve. I'd hate every minute of it but I'd hate the loss of business that preserving the area requires much more.

    Justice would have as little place in any of that as it does now.

    Lions eat 'rhino poachers' on South African game reserve

    The suspected poachers strayed into a large pride of lions, the reserve's owner said
    At least two suspected rhino poachers have been mauled to death and eaten by lions on a South African game reserve, officials say.

    Rangers discovered the remains of two, possibly three, people in a lion enclosure in the Sibuya reserve, near the south-east town of Kenton-on-Sea.

    These guys should have known better than to feed the lions.

    Apparently one of the victims moonlights as a clown when not poaching rhinos.

    One of the lions was heard to say that they thought the meat tasted funny
    There never has been a peace process, but rather an annexation process that used the “peace process” as a facade

    What idiots. If they had smeared blue cheese on themselves this never would have happened... lions hate that smell.
