London, Mar 7: A man from Kariba, Zimbabwe, narrowly escaped getting killed by a lion while having sex with his girlfriend in the bush.
However, his girlfriend wasn't so lucky.
According to My Zimbabwe, sources said that the unidentified man and his alleged girlfriend, identified as Sharai Mawera, were reportedly having sex in a bushy area situated in Mahombekombe suburb when a lion pounced at them.
"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. The two were having their quality time near Mahombekombe Primary School," the source said.
After realising the presence of the deadly wild animal in the midst of their alleged love nest, the survivor who was nude is said to have escaped for dear life while leaving his female counterpart behind.
Another source who claimed to know the two very well said that the man was naked since it was very hot.
The man is said to have been ignored by motorists and some members of the public who initially thought he was mentally challenged since he was naked.
Later on people heard his plea and accompanied him to police where he reported the matter.
Members of an apostolic sect who worship near the area where the tragedy occurred reportedly took to their heels amid claims that they saw 7 lions in the area.
Meanwhile, at around 10am, remains of another man who is yet to be identified were also discovered near ZESA social club.
Residents of the town are now living in fear since the lions are still roaming freely as there are yet to be caught. (ANI)
