On Tuesday afternoon, a field guide alerted the anti-poaching unit that there appeared to be human remains near the area in which the lions reside.
Authorities are now investigating the incident, which is believed to have involved two or three alleged poachers who walked into a group of six lions, Fox said. They also recovered three pairs of shoes, indicating that there were most likely three victims.
Three rhinos were killed in nearby Port Alfred in May 2018, raising the total of illegal rhino killings in the province to nine for the year. All were shot with high powered rifles and the poachers have not yet been caught.
Reserve owner Nick Fox believes the poachers planned to kill the entire herd.

An anti-poaching patrol's watchdog signaled some disturbance around 4:30 a.m., but the patrol figured it was just lions out hunting.

The owner said on Thursday that at least three suspected predators, who apparently hunted Rhino, were convict to death by lions in a game reserve in South Africa.
However, this time the hunters became the hunted, when they got in the way of the resident lion pride.
Previous reports suggested that a lone poacher had been attacked, but further investigation of the awful scene suggested at least two people were devoured by the lions. "We're not sure how many there were - there's not much left of them". Someone had sawn off their heads and paws-body parts used in traditional medicine, like rhino horn.
