Radio,4 news item.
A Rhino hunter has been eaten by a pride of lions.
After being trampled to death by elephants.
Only things found were his skull and his trousers.
A fitting end.
Doubt it’s the way the twat would have chosen to go.

I know its not actual karma but still grin

FissionChips Sun 07-Apr-19 14:52:44

Great news, hope he suffered terribly.

Ladygloss Sun 07-Apr-19 14:52:45

No. I am too

HarrysOwl Sun 07-Apr-19 14:53:20

Circle of life...

DragonMamma Sun 07-Apr-19 14:54:20

The hunter soon became the hunted.

No more than he deserved 😁

Sexnotgender Sun 07-Apr-19 14:55:54

Oh dear how sad.

BadPennyNoBiscuit Sun 07-Apr-19 14:57:20

It must have been a lovely shirt.

RedDogsBeg Sun 07-Apr-19 14:57:36

Not sorry that I am laughing.

Natural selection at it’s finest

Purplehammer Sun 07-Apr-19 15:17:35

He never dreamed he would become the ‘lions share.’

marvellousnightforamooncup Sun 07-Apr-19 15:38:36

He deserved it.

Aimily Sun 07-Apr-19 15:40:46

The only thing I feel bad about here is the animals that had to eat his clothes if all they found are his trousers... Or as my oh just said there has to be a monkey in a camp tee-shirt somewhere 🙈

RedDogsBeg Sun 07-Apr-19 15:43:37

The other clothes would probably just have been shredded rather than eaten but I do like the idea of a monkey parading around in the missing T-shirt!

Shinesweetfreedom Sun 07-Apr-19 15:46:11

Bless some good news concerning animals for a change

Sagradafamiliar Sun 07-Apr-19 15:58:37

I'd never take delight in something so hideous. Bit sick really. It's one thing feeling indifferent or recognising the irony, but another to be gleeful.

katmarie Sun 07-Apr-19 16:06:37

I really cant find it in me to feel sorry for this guy at all.

polarpig Sun 07-Apr-19 16:06:46

I wouldn't go so far as to feel delight but I certainly had no fucks to give.

FissionChips Sun 07-Apr-19 16:08:03

Why not delight? He was a horrible human and the world is a better place without him.

LellowYedbetter Sun 07-Apr-19 16:08:21

Aww this has cheered me up no end :-) thanks OP!

MagnificentDelurker Sun 07-Apr-19 16:09:20

I feel the same

Jinglejanglefish Sun 07-Apr-19 16:09:47

I am gleeful, one less piece of shit human in the world.

BlackCatSleeping Sun 07-Apr-19 16:11:15

I must admit I smiled when I read this story too. I imagined it like a scene from the jungle book with all the animals working together, even though I do realize it wasn’t actually like that.

polarpig Sun 07-Apr-19 16:13:07

Why not delight? He was a horrible human and the world is a better place without him.

Because he was someone's father. Other than that, yes.

FriarTuck Sun 07-Apr-19 16:18:41

If he'd been eaten by lions while out bird-watching I'd feel bad for him. Eaten while out hunting animals, yay lions! He put himself in that position while trying to take an innocent life, I can't feel much regret. If he has family then I'll be sympathetic towards them though.

IncrediblySadToo Sun 07-Apr-19 16:19:03

Rough justice & totally deserved.


HunterHearstHelmsley Sun 07-Apr-19 16:23:31

Its so nice to hear a good news story for a change.

SadieContrary Sun 07-Apr-19 16:29:05

I actually feel sorry for the poacher and his family. He will have been paid a pittance (but probably necessary to feed his family) by some rich person who would have exported the kill had it been successful to the Far East. I wish karma had sent that person to be trampled under the elephant and then devoured by the lion. I'd have celebrated that for sure.

polarpig Sun 07-Apr-19 16:34:29

@Sadiecontrary - that used to be the case - watch this:

LordProfFekkoThePenguinPhD Sun 07-Apr-19 16:36:20

Were they sure he was a hunter? If so we’ll its a risk of ‘the job’. Like bull fighters.

mumwon Sun 07-Apr-19 16:36:31

(thinks: didn't trump junior go hunting in Africa … such a nice man!)

NoCauseRebel Sun 07-Apr-19 16:41:41

Yeah, I feel sorry for his family that they were related to such lowlife in the first place. Live by the sword, die by the sword....

As for whether they were so sure he was a hunter, well, he entered the park on foot which is ill-advised. There are signs everywhere around these parks about not getting out of your vehicle etc etc etc. Over the years tourists have been eaten by lions etc when getting out to take their pictures with the pride and so on, and while I don’t feel the same kind of glee at their demise I don’t have an awful lot of sympathy for them either because they’re generally arrogant idiots. The risks of getting up close to a pride of lions or other wildlife are well known and well advertised within the game reserves, if you then go against that then you can hardly claim victim status if you’re eaten.
