Wild animal attacks are rare, but when they happen, human actions are frequently responsible, according to a new study. Threatening acts like feeding bears or trying to take a selfie with a bear are clearly bad life choices, but more commonplace activities can be equally provocative: walking with a dog off-leash, hiking after dark, or leaving children unattended. Attacks have serious consequences, for they can be fatal for both human and animal. Fortunately, these situations can easily be prevented.
Anaconda suffocates alligator
Chilling photographs show a python swallowing a massive crocodile whole after it squeezed the life out of the larger reptile in a murky Australian swamp.
The snake’s slackened jaws can be seen devouring the freshwater crocodile while the rest of its muscular length constricts around the beast in Queensland.
The bulging midriff of the olive python – Australia’s second largest snake – shows the bulk of the crocodile beneath its scaly skin and one gruesome picture shows the crocodile’s ridged tail indented on the snake’s throat.
Circus elephant attack
A circus elephant goes berserk and trashes a car after being beaten by its handler.
Onlookers watched in horror as the furious creature charged the trainer before laying into the Skoda Fabia.
The three elephants became agitated after being bathed in the sea in front of a large crowd in Karrebaeksminde, Denmark.
As the circus workers start to lose control, the huge beasts veered dangerously close to onlookers, including babies in prams and an elderly man in a mobility scooter, who had to be lifted off the road to safety.
Runner scales fence during pitbull attack
CCTV captured the moment the man was attacked by the powerful dog as it rampaged through the streets of Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood.
The horror clip also showed the pitbull leaping up towards the face and throat of the clearly scared local.
The headphone-wearing jogger’s ordeal started as he ran towards the giant dog while it was peeing up a roadside tree.
As he closed in, the pet’s panicked owner can be seen desperately trying to keep her animal under control.
Then the leash seems to snap under the strain and the now muzzle-free dog starts to give chase.
The jogger can then be seen trying to fend off the mutt as it repeatedly snaps at his arms and upper body.
At one stage, the pitbull’s owner seems to get it back under control but then it breaks free once more.
By now the savaged jogger is backed up against a fence and seems powerless to stop the hound’s repeated attacks.
The female owner is seen desperately trying to re-muzzle her pet before it causes any more harm.
Eventually, the runner has no choice but to scale the metal gate to escape the powerful dog’s snarling teeth.
Marlin jumps into boat
If you saw a huge fish hurtling in your direction, what would you do?
Jaw-dropping footage has emerged of a group of fishermen getting the shock of their lives when a marlin landed on the deck of their 50ft boat in far north Queensland, causing one of the men to jump overboard.
Docklands man Bill Donnell can be seen on the video strapped to his chair while the marlin is thrashing about.
He said the shock would frighten even the most experienced fisherman.
“All I could see was the face of the marlin with the beak pointing right at me and you think rather quick when you’re in that sort of life-threatening situation,” Bill Donnell told 3AW radio in Melbourne.
In the video, the Mr Donnell looks on helplessly while another man tries to free him from the fishing chair he’s strapped into.
A third man instinctively jumps overboard to get away.
The boat speeds forward, leaving the fisherman bobbing about in the waves.
“When you’re pulling the marlin in, there are that many sharks up there that the diver of the boat reverses to get the marlin up to the boat, so we still had it in reverse while he’s gone over the back,” Mr Donnell said.
“Next minute he’s swimming back to the boat … saying ‘get me out, get me out’ and at that point we realised he’s got his feet tucked up underneath him because there would be sharks on their way.”
Deep-sea fishing for marlin is considered an extreme sport by both professional and amateur fishermen.
