Her aunt used a torch to follow a trail of blood to find the girl’s body, said the state-run Chronicle.
The incident occurred on Saturday night in the wildlife-rich Chiredzi district. A police spokesperson said Mitchell Mucheni had gone round the back of the house to relieve herself while her aunt, 34-year-old Mawonei Muchacha waited for her.
When she didn’t return, Muchacha went to investigate and saw her niece’s body being dragged away by the lion. The aunt called for help from a neighbour and the two used a torch to follow the lion’s spoor.
