A few of humanity's worst citizens - poachers - snuck in to the Kruger National Park in South Africa in the middle of the night. They'd planned on checking traps, but instead found themselves in the deadly gaze of angry hippopotamuses. Hippos are the animal kingdom's number one killer of humans in Africa, so the men scattered. Two made it out alive; the third's remains were found, ostensibly devoured by lions.
This story should serve as a cautionary tale for any would-be poachers considering a career in illegal wildlife trade. While authorities may have their hands full when it comes to stopping [them], there remains a more natural form of justice, lurking among the wildlife so often pillaged--and in this case justice, like dinner, was served.
