    In 1999, super-model Fabio made news thanks to a ‘fowl’ incident at Busch Gardens in Virginia. Helping to promote the new Apollo’s Chariot roller-coaster, a bird smacked Fabio in the face during the coaster’s first downward plunge at speeds up to 73 miles per hour. The model ended his ride with blood splattered all over his famous face, and was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated and released for a minor cut. And maybe a bruised ego. In 2012, a 2-year old boy fell from a wooden railing at the Pittsburgh Zoo and was fatally mauled by 11 wild African dogs after falling into the animals’ exhibit. The child apparently lunged out of his mother’s arms after she had lifted him on top the wooden railing that surrounded the observation area so he could see the exhibit better. The boy’s parents reached an out-of-court settlement with the zoo in 2016.

    In 2010, Dawn Brancheau a veteran trainer at Sea World in Orlando, Florida was fatally attacked by a killer whale during a live performance at the park. Other trainers tried to rescue Brancheau, taking nearly a half-hour to free her from the whale’s mouth. Weighing more than 12,000 pounds, the male orca dragged the trainer underwater, fracturing her arms, legs, ribs, back and face ... and tearing off her left and part of her scalp. It must’ve been a hair-raising experience!

    In 1995 one of Alaska’s worst bear attacks in the state’s history took place outside of Anchorage. Two locals, Marcie Trent and Larry Waldron were out hiking with Trent’s 14-year-old grandson. They discovered a freshly killed moose, when they saw a grizzly bear tearing toward them through the brush. Waldron told the teenager to climb a tree to stay out of danger, which turned out to be good advice. The bear killed both Trent and Waldron, when it rushed forward to defend its moose-meal. Like they say, never get between a grizzly bear and its dinner!

    happened back in 1932: An entire pride of lions went on a rampage in a village in Tanzania. During a series of relentless attacks, the man-eating animals killed more than 1,500 humans -- and some claim the body count was higher than 2.000 people! According to legend, a local witch doctor controlled the beasts, making them attack the village when he was stripped of his position. Eventually George Rushby, a famous hunter of the time, killed 15 lions and the rest of the pride finally dispersed. By the way, villagers were convinced the lions only left because their chief restored the witch doctor to his old post. If true, the witch doctor was responsible for one of the bloodiest animal attacks in history -- wonder if he took pride in his job?

    The world was stunned in 2006 with the news that Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin died while filming a new documentary series in Australia. As Irwin was swimming in chest-deep water, he approached a stingray from the rear, hoping to film it as it swam away. But the animal reacted by suddenly stabbing Irwin with its tail, needing only a few seconds to inflict hundreds of strikes. Irwin bled to death after the the stingray’s barb pierced his heart. In a bitter irony, the title of the documentary was “Ocean’s Deadliest”. Crikey.

    In 2012, Andrew Oberle, a 26-year-old grad student from Texas was savagely attacked by two male chimpanzees at the Goodall Institute in South Africa. Experts claim the chimps were defending their territory when the grad student moved too close to a restricted area that separated the animals from visitors. Grabbing his feet, the chimps pulled him under two fences and dragged him for half a mile. During the mauling Oberle suffered life-threatening injuries that required hours of surgery. While eventually recovering, he still lost several fingers and toes and had to undergo reconstructive surgery from head to toe. Remember, chimpanzees are up to 6 times stronger than humans -- don’t monkey around with ‘em! In 2007 Eric Nerhus was diving for shellfish off Cape Howe in Australia when a 10-foot great white shark swallowed his head and upper body; well, almost. Nerhus managed batter the shark’s head, despite the creature’s attack leaving him with a broken nose and shattered face mask. But the shark wasn’t letting his meal get away that easily. Its jaws then clamped down on the diver’s body, but his lead weight vest absorbed most of the bite, essentially saving his life. Nerhus did suffer shock and extreme blood loss from deep cuts that required surgery. Surviving an encounter with one of the ocean’s deadliest predators -- and that’s no fish tale!

    Anyone that uses animals for entertainment would never receive sympathy from me if they are injured or killed.  It is always the animal that is killed even in the wild
