Filipina killed by employer's lions in Kuwait

Owners set two lions on fire and buried them to escape police

A Filipina housemaid died after she was half eaten by two lions owned by her Kuwait employers, who then set the animals on fire and buried them to escape police.

The two Kuwaiti men told police the maid was bitten by a dog but doctors said she was clearly attacked by two much bigger and fiercer animals.

The maid was rushed to hospital but died hours later after the lions ate off her arm and devoured most of her abdomen while she tried to feed them in their cage in the back garden of her employer’s house in the oil-rich Gulf emirate.

The Arabic language daily 'Al Watan' said police arrested the two men, who confessed that they had set the two lions on fire and buried them in an isolated place.
