Wildlife expert Stuart Williams says the girl’s cries could have possibly saved her. “A young girl whimpering could be mistaken for the mewing sound from a lion cub, which in turn could explain why they didn’t eat her,” he said.

Sgt. Wondimu says police caught four of the abductors while three remain on the run. The young girl was treated for her beatings and bruises.
