Cecil's revenge: Lion kills hunter

Too bad about the dogs, but otherwise I like this story:

From The Express:

Authorities reported a group of five men hunting without licences was attacked by the big cat at a private game farm near the Kruger.

Matome Mahlale, 24, was killed along with two dogs, who were accompanying the group.

Local police spokesman Colonel Ronel Otto said: "Three men managed to climb into a tree and another managed to escape, but the deceased and two dogs were mauled to death."

A local said: "There won't be many people feeling sorry for him. This is seen as poetic justice for the death of Cecil."

Cecil was a Southwest African lion who lived in the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, which borders South Africa where the killer lion attacked the hunter.
