Sharai Mawera and her unidentified fisherman friend were in the throes of passion when they were suddenly jumped from behind by the pride.
The man, who was naked save for a condom, managed to escape, turning around only once to see a helpless Mawera being thrashed about before fleeing to seek help.
Unfortunately, due to his state of undress, the man had a difficult time convincing passing motorists to assist him, and by the time he was finally able to reach a police station and escort wildlife management officials back to the scene of the mauling, it was too late.
Local police believe the lions who attacked the couple were also responsible for the death of another man whose severed arm was found nearby.
Identified only as Musinje, authorities say he was killed the previous night while returning home from a nightclub.
"That could have been the reason the lions did not completely eat the woman," a law enforcement source told New Zimbabwe. "Residents of the town are now living in fear as the lions are still roaming freely."
