ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) -- A pride of lions has killed and devoured 20 villagers, wounded 10 others and eaten at least 70 cattle in southern Ethiopia in the past week, police said Tuesday.
The attacks have forced at least 1,000 people to flee their homes in Hadia Zone, in the Southern Nation and Nationalities People State, 400 kilometers (250 miles) north of Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, according to a police statement.

Sorry old jokes from the 80's. I have more.
Good to see their new quarterback is taking charge.
This is why you never hear about lion attacks in China. The lions just end up CHOW MEIN an hour later anyway.
Great minds think a like. I was just about to ping you to this. A lot of humorous posts.
Both of these look like females to me.It was a great movie.
I remember as a kid reading a book about a tiger in India that took over 20 people before a hunter killed it. I always thought it would be a great story to make into a movie.
BTW one of my mentors in college who was a professor of geology, killed a tiger that was a man eater.
They found jewelry in its digestive tract when the gutted it.
He showed me its hide and it was a magnificent animal, even dead.
Narrator: In A.D. 2005, lunch was beginning. Chieftan: What happen ? Police: Somebody set up us the lion. Tribal Leader: We get signal. Chieftan: What ! Tribal Leader: Main screen turn on. Chieftan: It's you !! BIG HUNGRY CATS: How are you gentlemen !! BIG HUNGRY CATS: All your villagers are belong to us. BIG HUNGRY CATS: You are on the way to destruction. Chieftan: What you say !! BIG HUNGRY CATS: You have no chance to survive make your time. BIG HUNGRY CATS: Roar Roar Roar Roar .... Chieftan: Take off every 'Villager'!! Chieftan: You know what you doing. Chieftan: Move 'Villager'. Chieftan: For great justice.
And these are the animals the enviroweenies want to bring to America so they can populate the Western states?
It's too bad there wasn't a bunch of Hollywierdo's around marveling and how in balance with nature Ethiopians are.
Those lions could have a little variety in their diet.
Someone needs to stop this immediately. The lions could choke on the bones. That would be a pitty.
ROTFL...but seriously, it must be horrible to worry about being EATEN alive in your own home by a savage beast. They need a big hunter over there, somebody who really knows his way around the woods and duck blinds, like John Kerry.
This is horrible. I didn't think lions would normally attack humans unless provoked. Are the conditions in Ethopia still so bad that the lions have gooten more aggressive for their own survival, or is it that humans and lions have started to encroach on each other's territory, or what?
Lionesses tend to be the hunters. Male lions (those with a pride, at least) usually only fight to protect, not to eat.
You're not lyin'.
Ethiopian, its not just for breakfast any more.
They always eat the fat ones first...
It's ok the lion's won't mind.
The best defense against being eaten by a lion is to chain smoke. The tar permeates the flesh and the lions find it rather distasteful.
No but they took a people-bag.
Send in Siegfried and Roy. Oh, wait, make that just Siegfried.
