Default Simply Beautiful!! Police: Lions free kidnapped girl!!

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) - Police say three lions rescued a 12-year-old girl kidnapped by men who wanted to force her into marriage, chasing off her abductors and guarding her until police and relatives tracked her down in a remote corner of Ethiopia.

The men had held the girl for seven days, repeatedly beating her, before the lions chased them away and guarded her for half a day before her family and police found her, Sgt. Wondimu Wedajo said Tuesday by telephone from the provincial capital of Bita Genet, some 560 kilometers (348 miles) west of the capital, Addis Ababa.

it must have been a female lion
& apperently wild animals are not selfish like humans they won't go for hunting if they not hungry
& may be the lion would have heard girls screams ?

Could not beleive this.

It is better to even get killed by lions rather than the torture by the human animals. The reason given for not killing the girl seems to be accepting.

Dont know whether this one's true or not. But on a different note, even the Gulf War (Part I & II) were big hoaxes and PR stuff....and "credibly" aired by CNN.
