I read this on the news today. In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 7 men reportedly kidnapped and repeatedly beat a 12-yr-old girl to try to force her into marrying one of them and was found being guarded by 3 lions who chased away her captors. It is said that her crying could have sounded like the mewing of a lion cub. When they found her they had guarded her for about half a day and left her to go back to the forest once the police and her relatives came. It is being regarded by many as a miracle.
