Abducted Ethiopian girl found being guarded by lions

Wow, what a story...

Abducted Ethiopian girl found being guarded by lions, authorities say

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia Police in Ethiopia are calling it a miracle.

They're crediting three lions with helping keep safe a 12-year-old girl who'd been abducted and beaten by men trying to force her into a marriage.

Police say the lions stood guard by the girl after apparently chasing off her captors.

The girl had been missing for a week. One police official says the lions guarded the child for about half a day -- and after her rescue, the lions went back into the forest.

A wildlife expert says the girl's crying may have kept her from being eaten. He says the lions may have mistaken her whimpering for the mewing sound of a lion cub.

Awe--too bad that the lions didn't eat the three men that beat her.

My husband was saying it's amazing they didn't try to eat her if she was all bloodied.

For those that are religious and read the Bible, my husband said the story reminded him of Daniel in the Lion's den. He wants me to print it out just to keep cause it's such a touching story with those lions!

Truly an amazing story.

Being beaten doesn't necessarily = bloody, IMO.
