A lion attack in the African bush has killed a female who was having sex in the great outdoors.
Sharai Mawera and her partner, an unidentified male, were enjoying a private moment in the African bush when they fell prey to the killer lion.
A source close to the attack told news agencyMy Zimbabwe, “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.”
As if the lion attack wasn’t bad enough, the couple were caught off guard while having sex near the Mahombekombe Primary School.
The scary part of this story is that sex interrupting lion kills are nothing new. In fact, a nearly identical outcome occurred during a lion attack in 2002.
As The Huffington Post reports, “the National Parks and Wildlife Authority is warning Zimbabweans living near Harare to be cautious after rogue lions mauled two people to death on the shores of Lake Kariba.”
The outdoor sex act in the African bush may have been avoided if the couple had heeded early warnings. On Tuesday, a man and women were the victims of a lion attack, and, again, the man escaped unharmed. The women was less fortunate and was eaten by the voracious beast.
Lion populations have continued to decrease in recent years, yet more than 100 people are killed by the wild animals annually.
To avoid being attacked by a lion in the buff or even while fully closed, National Science Foundation officials note that 39 percent of all attacks occur between March and May. Those attacks are likely due to farmers who sleep outside in order to protect their livestock.
The Zimdiaspora notes that forest rangers put the entire town of Kariba on high alert because of lion maulings and several lion sightings throughout the area.
Would you be willing to have sex outdoors if there was even remotely the chance of a lion attack?
