The trampled body of the suspected poacher was found in Kruger National Park (KNP). South African National Parks (SANparks) took to twitter to release a statement. Initial investigations suspect that the deceased was trampled by an elephant and his remains were left behind by his accomplices. No animals in the immediate vicinity were harmed. KNP Management urges poachers to understand the gravity of illegal poaching in KNP, in which the price to pay are their lives and freedom.
