Karma's a b!tch

For some reason I find this extremely amusing. I wasn't aware that poachers were getting so bold as to break into preserves to shoot these rhinos. Oh, well, 3 douche bags gone, and a pride of lions that got an easy meal. Sounds like win/win to me.

The wild ones looking after their own

I'm not sure if this should be in the humour section or not.

After the incident, authorities recovered the remains of their parts, three pairs of shoes, wire cutters, high-powered hunting rifles fitted with silencers and a type of ax that is commonly used by poachers to remove rhino horns.
The poachers were in the wrong 'hood.

There was nothing left but the rifle, 3 pairs of shoes and 1 skull.

Tops my list of things I don't want to be hunted by: big cats, of any kind.

It's all fun and games until a 400lb cat rips your head off.

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

Saddened. Saddening I tell you /

There once was an anti-poaching hound,

Whose nose told her some remains were found;

She said with a bark, they should have stayed out of the park,

But now they’re only lion shit on the ground.
