Zimbabwean Killed by Pride of Lions in Shower

A Zimbabwean tourist in an open wildlife conservation area was killed by a pride of lions while showering last Friday. Though details of the attack are still emerging, experts blame the attack on poaching. Earlier in 2010, eight villagers were similarly attacked by lions hundreds of miles down the river.

Experts say a lack of food has lead villagers to poach lions, traumatizing the animals. It is believed they may be targeting humans as a result.
