It was a gruesome discovery for Gert Blom. The South African animal breeder and bush lodge owner found a total of 16 lions dead due to poisoning last week, with their paws and parts of their faces hacked off by poachers. “They had hacked off 32 paws for the claws and eight of their snouts for their teeth after killing them with poisoned chicken which is a really agonizing death for the lions,” Blom said, according to The Daily Mail.
