Forensic experts believe they have found the remains of wildlife hunter Scott van Zyl.

While on a hunting safari last week, wildlife hunter Scott van Zyl disappeared on the bank of the Limpopo River in South Africa. He is now believed to have been eaten by crocodiles after human remains were found inside two animals.

The Telegraph reports that the professional hunter, who is known for killing elephants, lions, and other exotic animals, often organizes trips for foreign clients. He was last seen with a pack of dogs and a Zimbabwean tracker. Reportedly, Mr. van Zyl and the tracker left the truck and walked in different directions into the bush. Though the dogs and the Zimbabwean tracker returned, Mr. Van Zyl did not. In fact, his belongings remained in the vehicle.

For days, the area was scoured by rescue teams, helicopters, trackers, and divers. The last tracks of his show that he walked to the bank of the river; his backpack was found nearby. According to Sakkie Louwrens, a member of one of the search teams, it is most likely Mr. van Zyl was consumed by two Nile crocodiles.

The rescuer commented:

“We found what could possibly be human remains in them.”

The hunter’s website proudly proclaims that the SS Pro Safaris company “has conducted numerous safaris” throughout Southern Africa. These include “elephants in Botswana to the smallest blue duiker in KwaZulu Natal”. As The Independent notes, the list includes buffalo, rhino, lions, leopards and antelopes.

Forensic experts are presently conducting tests to determine whether or not the remains belong to the wildlife hunter. What are your thoughts? Please comment below and share this news!

  1. If he has guided people to the killing of elephants and big cats, he has received his karma. Excellent!!

  2. Boo fucking hoo! I’m happy to hear that the animals now can live longer lives not needing to worry about this douchebag trying to kill them.

    Thank goodness from the wild kingdom!

  3. Although I am not a supporter of hunting animals, especially exotic animals for “fun”, my condolences to his family. To wish harm on this man and grief for his family is no better than his act against killing animals for the “sport” of it.

    • He wished it upon himself for being where he shouldn’t be. He took a risk and as a result, his family will suffer the loss. He is responsible for that.

  4. BBI this man deserved all he got!! You get what you are given and this man killed defenceless animals. And he became the defenceless one!! Il happy

  5. Just not necessary to hunt anymore. Killing for sport is barbaric and cruel…there are so many other ways to raise money. Don’t feel sorry for Him what so ever. Perfect way for him to go.

  6. While I can not rejoice at anyone’s demise . I can say that one’s actions or lack of will most certainly come back to you. This has been proven time and time again.
    I do feel badly for his family. They know how much agony he suffered and how afraid he most likely was in his last moments. They will have to live with that knowledge. Compassion for those left behind is important to me. I never want to loose that part of my thought process. IF I ever do then I will be as ugly as this poacher.

  7. I’m sorry but to kill the animals to raise capital to conserve the very same animal is a twisted mentality… It’s like saying let’s kill all the rhinos to stop them from being poached or let’s kill all the humans to raise funds to stop them from destroying nature and each other…. what mentality is this?

  8. watching karma in action is a beautiful thing- like all the animals that will now not die because this piece of shit was croc dinner 🙂 every once in a while the universe restores my faith in justice

  9. Poetic justice taken bt the animals he hunted if thats the world he livs in you carnt expect thst one day he would get whst he deserved haha

  10. Wow, I cannot believe so many people are cheering for someone being dead. First, get your facts straight. Hunting, and even price hunting is done to regulate animal populations, so that no individuals have to starve, or that the an area degrates due to overgrazing, especially in reserves. Even than, the usually shoot the old or sick animals. There is nothing wrong with hunting and shooting animals in general, it is often better for ecosystem. Of course, I do have to admit that I dont know this hunter (which is not a poacher) in particular, so he could be crossing some rules.
    But please, dont just cheer because a person got killed, that is not a way to bring this world forward.

    • How is killing endangered animals or animals close to being endangered better for the eco system? I dont think any animals in Africa need their populations to be regulated. They’re struggling to survive because of trophy hunters and poachers.

  11. Scott is not exactly popular in death! Though for those sharing this perspective, he was just slightly more popular in death than he was in life! For me I think a Crocodile faeces analysis would have been a more popular means of establishing the facts rather than slaying the poor animals. Also it would have been more in keeping with the theme of the life lived.

  12. @Jimm: sure u are right. But when I look at the ugly posings in the photos of this “huntsmen” I can barely imagine that this guy did the hunting in order to serve the ecological system. For me it looks like that he was nothing else than moneygrubbing trophy hunter. Therefore think his death is for sure no reason to celebrate but I´m also wasting no tears cause of his ending.
