Never ever screw with a wild critter. No matter how "tame" they may act, it's just a matter of time. Ask Sigfried and Roy.
Steve Irwin and Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom did more to screw up our perspective as to what is wild than they did to entertain us.

I'm always amazed at the idiocy of some people. Every year someone tries to get close to a buffalo (or a bear) out in Yellowstone. Bad idea. Sure they may get some neat photos. But every now and then the bison lets it be known he/she just wants to be left alone or the bear has had a really bad toothache or something and....

And let's not discuss the folks who pull their car over and let their kids hand feed the bears along the road--sometimes after getting out of the damn car! What's going to happen when you run out of PB&J, you jerk?

Here it looks like they couldn't get the hot dogs out of the bag fast enough for Mr. Moray. Well, hell, fingers look just like hot dogs.


They also had him so excited he was in a frenzy.

Crazy man... Oh my gosh, that is scarey!!!! Gail, do you scuba?


My little brother and I were tree'd by a bull one summer... we deserved it and developed a great deal of respect for critters that year. We just sat there until my dad found us and pulled the truck up to the tree for us to jump in. I thank GOD there was a tall enough Juniper in the area for both of us.

I did wet my pants. Yes, I did.


I once did the feed the stingrays thing at "Stingray City" on Grand Cayman. For some reason I got really creeped out about 2/3s of the way through and went back on the boat for the last little bit. I'm not sure why...nothing changed or happened except a really strange feeling said "leave."

And no, I usually ignore the competing voices in my head...

Two words. Grizzly Man. They don't want to be your friend, they want to EAT. You, if that's all that's available.
