Lions Rescue Girl
How bizarre is this story? Lions rescue a girl in Ethiopa who had been kidnapped and beaten in an attempt to force her to marry one of her captors. Living in the United States, it is hard for me to grasp the concept of wanting to marry someone who didn't want to marry you back. Or to kidnap a twelve year old girl. This is certainly more bizarre than the fact that three lions chased off her captors and stood guard until help arrived, although that is strange as well. Wildlife experts speculate that the lions might have mistaken her crying for the mewls of a cub. But she is still a child, don't you think?
