A woman has been mauled to death by a lion while making love to her boyfriend in the African bush.
Sharai Mawera was enjoying a tryst with her lover in Kariba, northern Zimbabwe, when the big cat attacked.
According to The Sun, a source told My Zimbabwe: "Unfortunately the woman was mauled to death by the lion, but her boyfriend managed to escape naked.
"The two were romping when the incident occurred. The lion came from behind and roared.
"The guy managed to escape before stopping at a distance where he witnessed his companion being attacked. He later rushed to the road seeking help."
A friend said that Ms Mawera had worked at the local market and her partner was a fisherman. They reportedly used to meet regularly at the same spot for a romantic rendez-vous.
Local police and armed rangers from the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority attended the scene.
A source told the Daily Mail: "Cops and officers attended the scene and fired a single shot before getting to the spot.
"The woman had already been killed. She had bloody bruises all over her body. Her neck and tummy had been mauled."
