A 14-year-old boy has been killed and eaten by a lion as he lay guarding his family’s crops in north-eastern Zimbabwe, a report said on Wednesday.

The boy, whose name was not given, was snatched by the lion in the early hours of Monday in Mariga Village, near Zimbabwe’s border with neighbouring Zambia and Mozambique.

He was in the company of his uncle when the incident happened.

“They were sleeping in the field guarding [the maize crop] against rhinos, elephants and buffaloes,” Peter Enock Chapoto, the local chief, told the official Herald newspaper.

“Usually we build a watch tower so that those manning the field sleep on a high place. However, the boy was in the company of his uncle and they decided to sleep on the ground. The lion came and attacked him before dragging him away.”

He said only the boy’s head had been recovered.

In 2010 a UN agency had to provide tents and other relief for 100 families that were displaced after five lions from the Dande and Chewore safari areas attacked and killed four people in the same district.
