A suspected poacher is missing after authorities say he jumped into a crocodile-infested lake to avoid arrest

A suspected poacher is missing after leaping into a crocodile-filled lake at a South Africa nature reserve to “avert” potential arrest, authorities told Newsweek.

The unnamed man reportedly entered Lake St Lucia, an estuarine lake in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, on Friday, November 12, the media outlet said.

He was with a group of three other suspected poachers who moored their boat on the bank of the lake, which is home to deadly Nile crocodiles and hippopotami, on Friday morning, according to field rangers.

The field rangers ordered the suspects to surrender, but they were shot at, Newsweek said. The rangers then returned fire, the media outlet reported.

“The suspected poachers ran in different directions during the shoot-out,” said a joint statement from iSimangaliso Wetland Park and Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, the South African government organization responsible for maintaining wildlife conservation areas.

    Crocs and hippos gotta eat, too. I’m sure the late un-lamented Mr Poacher was a tasty snack.

    If I were the (customer? store clerk?) in this second story, not sure I would have called the police right away. I might have done a “police call” around the building to try to find and pick up the “trash” first (assuming the “trash” was within the AO of the store). Gotta have a neat and tidy area when company is coming to visit.

      Perp jumping into the lake was denying hyenas a meal, hyenas gotta eat…same as lions. *spit* Lots of critters in Africa like to snack on “long pork”…including 2 legged critters.

      Maybe the grocery store perp will take the express checkout lane…and get bagged.

      Damn shame that Ms Thang has already ruined her life by age 20.

      Before that tragic boat accident, there was a repro 1862 Overland Stage Rabbit Ear shottie in 12 gg within reach. 00 in one side, slug in the other.
