Default A spot of good news...

If you look, you can always find a spot of good news on any day:

A suspected poacher was trampled to death by a herd of elephants in
South Africa over the weekend, according to national park officials.

The man and two alleged accomplices ran into a herd of elephants as they
were trying to escape from rangers who had spotted them at Kruger
National Park, one of Africa’s largest game reserves, on Saturday, South
African National Parks said in a statement.

The rangers searched the area and found a man "badly trampled," who
later succumbed to his injuries, according to the release.

The rangers requested backup from the Airwing and K9 unit. When the
suspects realized they had been spotted, they dropped an axe, and a bag
with their provisions "in an attempt to escape," the statement added.

Authorities are still looking for the third suspect, who continued to
flee and is believed to have suffered an eye injury.

A rifle was also recovered. Officials said the trio are suspected of
attempting to poach rhinos in the area.

"It is unfortunate that a life was unnecessarily lost," said Gareth
Coleman, managing executive of the Kruger National Park. "The campaign
against poaching is the responsibility of all us; it threatens many
livelihoods, destroys families, and takes much-needed resources to fight
crime which could be used for creating jobs and development."

Good news. Nothing unfortunate about the like that was lost, unless it was a
rhino.
