(Huffington Post)-Wildlife rangers in Zimbabwe say they have put the northern resort town of Kariba on full alert after rogue lions mauled to death two people near a suburb there.

The National Parks and Wildlife Authority said fliers are being handed out in the town Wednesday and volunteers are using a loudspeaker to caution townspeople on the dangers of lion attacks on the shores of Lake Kariba, a man-made hydroelectric dam popular for fishing and tourism.

It said one man escaped from a lion attack on Tuesday, but the woman with him was savaged to death. An arm and remains of a second corpse were found by rangers hunting for the lions.

The authority warned people against walking at night and using footpaths through the bush as shortcuts.
