Lions guard abducted Ethiopian girl until rescuers arrive
This iz a pretty amazing story. Cats of any size iz awesome.
A 12 year-old girl in Ethiopia waz abducted and beaten by a group of men with plans to force marriage upon her. The innocent human, missing for an entire week, waz found guarded by three lions. She waz beaten repeatedly before finally escaping into the wild.
Sgt. Wondimu Wedajo waz at the scene of her rescue. "They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest," Wondimu said. “If the lions had not come to her rescue, then it could have been much worse. Often these young girls are raped and severely beaten to force them to accept the marriage," he said. The abductors really didn't haz a choice when they saw a bunch of lions surrounding her and ran for the hills. But the lions comforted her until help came. How awesome iz that?
Wild life experts believe she may haz been protected due to the sound of her cries. The whimpering of a young girl may haz resembled the sound of a young cub.
Either way, this little girl escaped some evil humans thanks to some wild lions protecting her. Stories like this make me haz a happy. Hazah!
