I ran across this story on Reddit tonight. Very cool.
Kidnapped Girl Rescued by Lions
A pride of lions has rescued a girl from her kidnappers in rural southwest Ethiopia, according to police.
A 12-year-old girl was snatched by four men on her way home from school early in June. A week later, kidnappers were moving her with police in pursuit when three lions encountered the group and chased the men off, local police said.
The lions stayed with the girl without harming her, before departing as police searching for her came near.
An officer reported that they found the girl alive but shocked and terrified. "They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest," he said.
Four men have been arrested.
