Lions Guard 12-Year-Old Kidnapped Ethiopian Girl And Chase Off Her Captors!

| Filed under: Sad SadScary!Lions

ethiopian girl protected by lions

Holy. Shizz.

A 12-year-old girl was kidnapped in Ethiopia, beaten, and almost forced into an awful and disgusting marriage, but luckily, that marriage didn't happen because she was saved by LIONS.

Three lions, to be exact!

The lions chased off the seven men who took her for a week, wanting her to to marry one of her captors.

She was found by police and relatives on the outskirts of Bita Genet, Wondimu, beaten and in terrible condition with the lions STANDING GUARD. They had been standing guard for half of the day before she was found!

Here's what the police said:

“They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest. If the lions had not come to her rescue, then it could have been much worse. Often these young girls are raped and severely beaten to force them to accept the marriage. Everyone thinks this is some kind of miracle, because normally the lions would attack people."

The good news — other than her amazing survival, of course — is that the cops caught FOUR of the seven abductors. Three are still at large, but at least they aren't all still at large!

The bad news is that marriage by abduction is a HUGE custom in Ethiopia. We're talking an estimated 70 percent or more of marriages in Ethiopia are by abduction!

"Custom" or not, that's horrible!

    Not that big of a deal. I saw a video posted in a place of a young large cat, killing a baboon, then finding the baby on the mother, the cat took the baby into a tree, and looked after it. It probably died anyway, but not at the paws of the cat.

    Probably same idea here.

    They thought they were gaurding their dinner. No way the lions gave a shit about this girl. Lions have no conscience. And there is no God so we can rule out divine intervention. As for arranged marriage. I have mixed feelings about arranged marriages of sensible aged humans. I believe the history of "arranged" marriages in europe is part of the reason europeans have an average IQ of 97-104. No parents want to arrange their daughters to marry white trash, so they arranged them to marry the richest, smartest most successful men they could find which, while not intended, resulted in proper eugenics, breeding and ultimately, the phenomenal success of europe. When the practice died, euro culture immediately made marrying rich successful men "taboo" ("you gold digger") and females started equating avoiding successful intelligent euro males with "strength and independence" which has led to what a scientist forecasts as a reduction of euro IQ by 14 points since the victorian [arranged marriage] era.

    As for Ethiopia. That was one of the countries my parents used their business profits to help in the form of charity for decades. That place is one of the worst countries in the world. I have been there. Girls get married so young there, they often have babies at 11 years old. And those babies tear holes into the girl's fecal pathways (somehow). Tears that wont heal without surgery. So these women end up going thru life dripping fecal material from their gines and become outcasts due to the fecal odor (I've never seen one of those women myself. My mom saw it on oprah and told us about it). Ethiopians arent arranging their daughters to marry rich successful educated males (there are none there in the bush). So, the practice is of no benefit to them eugenically.

    Re: fafa – God? He didn't even intervene against Mary's betrothal to Joseph (she, being originally jewish, was likely about same age as this girl). Nor did he intervene against his own impregnation of a child (mary was closer to 13 than 30). Nor did he intervene against Garden inbreeding of eve's children. God doesn't intervene. We just pretend he does.

    Re: SamRamDamCam – I didnt mean to imply that that scientist (whose name I cant remember) endorses arranged marriages or attributes the rise and fall of european IQ to arranged marriages. Thats my own theory based on what I know about the genetics of IQ and my belief that humans can be bred for traits just like animals and vegetation can be. I know that if parents were choosing their daughters' husbands.. they would NOT arrange them to marry tattooed druggy dregs, criminals, flunkies etc (the lower IQ segment). Not if they could help it. Over their dead bodies. But left to their own devices, females will actually marry that because "money cant buy love. I'm strong and independent. I dont need no high IQ successful accomplished upperclass father for my babies".

    This article is from June 2005. Why is Perez Hilton publishing it now. I thought this site was supposedly trying to have more integrity. If so, why report something from 8.5 years ago and not even indicate that in the article???? DIsappointing, Perez :(

    Re: fafa – I do believe in God. I just know him by a different name. His name is High IQ or Nerd (for short). Lord Nerd, the creator of all things (from computers to phones etc). Nerd actually answers prayers. "God, can you please give us a cure for malaria?"…."Dont ask him. Ask me! I'm the Nerd around here and no problem! I have one for you! Take these pills"…"oh thank you!".. "wait! thats not all. Here is INSECT REPELLANT. apply it to your skin".."thank you!!".. "wait wait! Thats not all. Here is bug proof netting for your bed that I figured out how to weave and mass produce"…"um….um…….. …um…….. um… THANK you?"…."wait. thats not all! I'm going to fly a plane over your land and drop insecticide or larvicides over that mucky pond"…."oh thank God!!"… "YOU BITCH!!"

    "God" DOES need nerds. Nerds are the ones doing all his work for him. If nerds hadnt figured out how to shape metal wings so as to provide enough lift to carry man overseas to feed the starving and treat HIV and ebola…. half of africa would be dead. God needs nerds. And he needs humans to CREATE more nerds to act as his brain on earth. This can only be done by women learning to choose their mates (or have those mates chosen for them) properly. Bed nerds not jocks. (thats step one)

    This story is so old, that 12 year old girl is around 21 now. Still a great story.

    The LORD works in mysterious ways. This is definitely a beautiful sign, and miracle from God. Blessed be my rock, my rock of salvation.

    Re: SamRamDamCam – I will pray for you! Sure really bad things happen, but if you aren't to ignorant you can see the beauty in things. Especially this story. Lions saved this girl! Are you serious? God intervenes all the time. Its up to us to listen or pay attention to the signs. They are there. You just have to be open to it. Open your heart, and love. Have faith in the good that is still out there. Only we can change it.

    Re: Katie T. – and Im telling you the lions were going to eat the girl. I am not here to challenge your deity or your faith. We just have different deities.I worship IQ and nerds (Something that is proven by science to exist and something that actually creates things). You worship a mystical deity. There is beauty in this story, but, there is also beauty in stories where 13 year old girls are arranged into marriage with men and then they grow to love him, have 7 babies with him, enjoy their decades as his wife and love the sex they get from him and mourn his passing like any wife (although I cant imagine they love the sex in ethiopia. Ethiopia is a major clitorectomy state). But seems to me, a God would have saved her BEFORE she was unlawfully seized. And why does god save one girl with lions and then allow 100s of other african children to be eaten by them and grabbed off their bikes (yes they sometimes have bikes)?

  18. SamRamDamCam says – reply to this


    Anyways, I have to be moving on (not to the next world). But if nothing else, this story made me realize how selfish PETA and animal rights activists are. Animal rights activists seem to think that lions belong in the wild where they eat and kill african children but don't belong in zoos where they pose no danger to any african child. Hmmm. Selfish.
    by the way, where was the girl in relation to the lions? Its possible she was hiding somewhere and they didnt even see her. I do thank God she didnt thank the lions. If she had, they would have been like "what the??!!! you mean, that wasnt a tree? DIBS. I call dibs"

    Re: SamRamDamCam – by the way, i do not support people being arranged into marriage at 13 and certainly not STOLEN into marriage (thats horrific). God or no god. In kenya, child theft is so common, some governments advise tourists to not interact at all with kenyan children in the bush (not even to give them candy when they beg for it) because the paranoia of child theft is running high and when rural people there panic, they murder. Tourists have lost their lives by evoking child theft paranoia and didnt have the language proficiency to explain their way out of it. "what? people relax. The kid said 'give me sweet. give me sweet' thats all. I had some cadbury candies". Wrong language. I don't feel anybody should marry until at least 16. I do support 16 with parental consent. And for very complicated eugenics related reasons, I support arranged marriages because I believe parents would pick husbands better than daughters would which would benefit the hive more.
