Lions rescue Ethiopian girl


A 12—year—old Ethiopian girl who was in the pitiful state of beating off a pack of thugs who wanted to force her to marry one of them, got help from an unexpected source. Three magnificent black—maned Ethiopian lions, leaping and roaring from the wild, intervened to chase off the thugs, and then spent half a day protecting the girl until help arrived. It sounds like magical realism. Or divine intervention. Maybe they were descended from the lions who protected Daniel in the Lion's Den. There are always mysteries we don't quite know the answer to, but can marvel at as wonders of the world.

Assuming this report is true, of course.
