A lion reportedly attacked a man and woman having sex in a bush in Africa, killing the woman. The incident occurred outside a Zimbabwe village.

A source tells My Zimbabwe:

A lion

"Unfortunately the woman, known as Mai Desire, was mauled to death by the lion; her boyfriend managed to escape naked and he was only wearing a condom."

The two having "quality time" near Mahombekombe Primary School. The man eventually notified police who found the woman's mauled body, reports say.

The Huffington Post reached out to the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management to confirm details of the attack but did not receive a response.

The story of the deadly sex may seem quite unbelievable. It is worth noting that a similar incident with an almost identical outcome was reported in 2002.

Then, the news outlet reported that a man and woman were attacked by a lion when they were having sex in a bush near their Tanzanian village.

The ferocious feline attacked the woman, but the man escaped. When he returned later, the lion had disappeared, leaving only the woman's remains.

A 2005 study by the National Science Foundation discovered that 39 percent of lion attacks occur between March and May during the harvest season.

That's when farmers often sleep outside to protect their livestock. In Tanzania alone last year, more than 100 fatal lion attacks were reported.
