A WOMAN was mauled to death by lions as she made love to her boyfriend in the bush.
Sharai Mawera died on Tuesday after the animals pounced as she enjoyed a romantic al fresco moment with her unnamed partner, the Herald reported.
The lions attacked the couple at a secluded spot in the bush near the northern town of Kariba.
Mawera's boyfriend, who has not been identified, is believed to have fled in the nude when the lions struck. He raised the alarm.
When the police, joined by parks and wildlife rangers, went looking for Mawera, they found her already dead.
Nearby, they discovered a man’s severed arm – a suggestion, police say, that the lions had killed the previous night.
A police source explained: “That could have been the reason the lions did not completely eat the woman. Residents of the town are now living in fear as the lions are still roaming freely.”
