RESIDENTS of a resort town in Zimbabwe are on alert after a rogue lion mauled to death two people.Reports suggest that the man and his girlfriend, identified as Sharai Mawera, were having sex in a bushy area in Kariba when the lion attacked.
"Unfortunately the woman, who was also known as Mai Desire, was mauled to death by the lion but her boyfriend managed to escape naked and he was only wearing a condom," a source told myzimbabwe.com.
It says the man managed to escape and ran off while the woman was mauled to death.
Many motorists ignored the man, MyZimbabwe reported, because he was running all over the road naked.
An arm and the remains of a second corpse, believed to be an as-yet-unidentified man, were found by rangers hunting for the lions.
The National Parks and Wildlife Authority said fliers are being handed out in the town and warned people against walking at night and using footpaths through the bush as shortcuts.
Volunteers are using a loudspeaker to caution townspeople on the dangers of lion attacks on the shores of Lake Kariba, a man-made hydroelectric dam popular for fishing and tourism.
