One of the officers, Sergeant Wondmu Wedaj, said that the lions stood guard until the girl was found. And as soon as they spotted the officers, the animals simply left her there, "like a gift", and returned to the forest.

In addition, the girl later revealed that the only harm she experienced was by her kidnappers and that the lions did not hurt her at all. 

The four kidnappers, by the way, were eventually caught and arrested.
