Guruve, January 23, 2010 - Stray lions have forced 50 Guruve families to flee their homes amid reports that three people have already been fatally attacked by the predators.

The stranded villagers of Kanyemba are now being housed at a nearby school.

“More than 50 families have been displaced since last week,” said a National Parks officer, who refused to be identified. “ They are now staying at Kapota School.”

He said the villagers were being guarded by armed National Parks officers.

Kanyemba is a wild life area near the Zambezi River and along the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia.
