Little Girl is Mangled to Death By a Lion While Having a Pee Outside at Night in Zimbabwe

A GIRL, 10, has been mangled to death by a lion while having a pee behind a hut in Zimbabwe, according to reports.

The youngster’s aunt watched on in horror as the predator attacked and dragged the girl’s body for 300m, police have said.

Little Mitchell Mucheni had gone outside with her aunt Mawonei Muchacha at about 7pm on Saturday when the big cat struck, state-linked newspaper Chronicle reports.

Ms Muchacha, 34, had waited at the front of the house while the youngster went to the back.

After becoming concerned she went to check on the youngster and saw the lion dragging her body, cops said.

She reportedly tracked the animal with a neighbour and found her niece’s body near fields.

The attack took place close to a famous game reserve in the south east of the country.

Asst Insp Kudakwashe Dehwa told Chronicle: “We have received reports of a sudden death.”

“A lion killed a 10-year-old girl from Chiredzi.”

“The girl had gone behind their house during the night to relieve herself when she met her fate.”

“She was allegedly attacked and her body dragged for 1,000 feet before the lion disappeared.”
