South Africa | After lions kill suspected poachers in private PA, some smirk, others cite poverty
CAPE TOWN — In the cold hours before dawn this week on a South African game reserve, a dog began barking. A special breed of Belgian sheepdog, its job was to listen for poachers.
The dog’s handler, trained to guard rhinoceroses, could hear a pride of lions in the distance. He decided it was a false alarm. But later that Monday evening, rangers came across the remains of men suspected to have been poachers.
