Its unclear how many people were killed on the reserve at this time. Authorities believe the men entered the game reserve in the early hours of Monday; they were found dismembered the following day, the news agency reports.

"We're not sure how many there were there's not much left of them".

When he arrive on the scene, Fox said they discovered the high powered rifle, gloves, wire cutters and the remains of a back pack with food and water.

"The only body part we found was one skull and one bit of pelvis, everything else was completely gone", he said.

At least three suspected poachers have been mauled to death and eaten by lions after breaking into a wildlife reserve in South Africa.

He added, however, that the clothing strewn around the scene points to there being at least three.

Mr Fox said one of the reserve's anti-poaching dogs had alerted her handler that something was amiss.

"And it can't be allowed to continue". "Because they're going to get beaten so badly". "So I'm actually quite happy about it". In April, the Intercept obtained 1,224 complaints of sexual and physical abuse in immigration detention centers.

This was revealed to SowetanLIVE by reserve owner Nick Fox following the discovery of human remains in the lion camp on the reserve earlier this week. This is when authorities believed the incident occurred. On Wednesday, Sibuya employees and police found the poachers' gear scattered through the thick bushes.

Fox said the supplies were "the hallmarks of a gang intent on killing rhino [s] and removing their horns".

"The firearm has been taken by police and will be sent to the ballistics laboratory to establish if it has been used in any other poaching or crimes".

The search party also enlisted the assistance of a helicopter to locate any survivors.

Park staff came across a grisly scene as a human head, bloodied limbs and three pairs of shoes were discovered at Sibuya Game Reserve near Kenton-on-Sea in Eastern Province.

The Sibuya reserve is home to rhinos, lions, elephant, buffalo and leopards and is popular with British tourists.

In 2016 the reserve lost three rhinos when poachers got into the park and shot them dead and cut off their horns.
