Lion Kills 10-Year-Old Girl Near Game Reserve
A young girl has been killed by a lion while relieving herself at night at the back of a hut in a rural part of Zimbabwe, a police spokesman told the state-linked Chronicle newspaper.
The aunt of the little girl, named as Mitchell Mucheni, saw the lion drag her into the bush, Assistant Inspector Kudakwashe Dehwathe said.
The child’s body was later found about 300m away, he added.
The incident happened on Saturday night in Chiredzi.
