Park rangers at the Sibuya Game Reserve near Kenton-On-Sea in South Africa found the mauled body parts of at least three people in a lion enclosure. A signal from an anti-poaching dog early Monday morning and the sound of commotion from the lions didn't raise suspicion as the animals are often active at night.
It wasn't until Tuesday that a tour guide operator noticed what appeared to be human remains and other items in the vicinity of the lions.
A helicopter was called in to search for morepoachers but none were found.
"At this stage it is not clear exactly how many poachers were killed but the police forensic team continue to investigate", Mr Fox wrote. Additionally, the rifle will be tested by a ballistics lab to see if it has been used in other crimes.
Poaching is a major issue on the Eastern Cape with nine rhinos killed by illegal hunters on reserves this year.
According to The Herald, a police spokesperson says authorities will examine the human remains recovered on the scene. The Washington Post was unable to reach Fox for comment.
The 30 square mile park is home to all of Africa's "Big Five" - rhinos, lions, elephants, buffalos, and leopards.
Rhino poaching carries a jail sentence in South Africa. Previous year alone 1,028 rhinos were killed in the hands of poachers.
Rhino poachers kill rhinos in order to remove their horns and sell them as rhino horns cost as much as gold by weight on the black market.
This is not the first time that poachers have targeted the Eastern Cape.
Rhinos have had a rough go in the Sibuya province lately.
According to Ellis, poachers are members of well-organized criminal networks driven by a demand from the Asian market. Despite the fact that rhino horn's virility-boosting and medicinal effects are a myth, powdered horn sells for up to $100,000 per kilogram in Vietnam, worth more than its weight in gold. "It's a crime of greed".
Asked if he was happy that the rhinos were safe, Fox said that he was extremely happy.
