I read an AP report in yesterday's Star-Ledger about a 12-year-old girl in Ethiopia who was abducted from her home. The group of men who took her wanted to force her into marrying one of them. Apparently, they had beaten her severely in the wilderness over the course of a couple of days. The miracle part is that the police and the girl's family found her, surrounded by 3 lions. The lions had chased the men off, and protected her until the rescuers got to her then, the policeman said, the lions got up and "left her, like a gift."
