Some Good News – Lions Rescue 12 Year Old Girl

January 23, 2012

I read an incredible story today.

It could be fake. But I feel it’s true.

A 12 year old Ethiopian girl, beaten by men trying to force her into a marriage, was found being guarded by three lions.

“The girl, missing for a week, had been taken by seven men who wanted to force her to marry one of them, said Sgt. Wondimu Wedajo, speaking by telephone from the provincial capital of Bita Genet, about 350 miles southwest of Addis Ababa.

She was beaten repeatedly before she was found June 9 by police and relatives on the outskirts of Bita Genet, Wondimu said. She had been guarded by the lions for about half a day, he said.

“They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest,” Wondimu said.”

Maybe it’s fake.

I’d rather read this than some bullshit about the DOW, Brangelina rumors, or politics.

Those are all definitely fake.
