The meaning of any word depends on the context.
Poached eggs is the way eggs are prepared/cooked. The verb poach also has other meanings in different contexts and yeah it could mean to illegally catch or kill an animal, as this example I found online:
The two men were caught poaching lions on government land.

Here is the source if you would like to read more:
