SOUTH AFRICA (WKRC) - A suspected big cat poacher was killed and eaten by lions near the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Police say the animals ate his body, leaving his head and some body parts behind, BBC reports.

"It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions," Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP. "They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left his head and some remains."

Police have not identified the person killed, but a hunting rifle and ammunition were found next to the body.
