Authorities reported a group of five men hunting without licenses was attacked by a strange animal at a private game farm near the Kruger.
Matome Mahlale, 24, was killed along with two others, 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 others 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.
