Wild animal attacks on humans...

Recommended Posts

Living in the more rural areas of the United States or Canada, you can be forgiven for having a fear of encroachment by grizzly bears, black bears, coyotes or the occasional mountain lion.

It would appear though that living in Germany can bring you a different level of terror from yet another of nature's fearsome creatures...

I've seen a fair few animal attack movies, but I don't think this one's got "genre classic" written all over it, to be fair..

More like Night of the Lepus.

To be fair on NotL, it had a surprisingly good cast for the genre, with DeForrest Kelly, Janet Leigh and Rory Calhoun as well as some decent support, but they really didn't have much to work with. It plods a lot, and could have had a few more moments of uncertainty in the final reel, but the giant bloodthirsty bunnies are awfully cute.

You don't have to go too far for wild killer animals, a Farmer in Sussex was killed last night by his own herd of cattle.

More people (not per 100,000, straight out more) are killed each year by cows than are killed by bears or wolves in the USA.

You have put “killer” in between wild and animal to change meaning of OP. Cows are not wild! 😁

i have personality been dived at  by a carrion crow and by a buzzard.

As long as it's just nuclear materials and not Novocheck; the latter would make us a bit nervous down Salisbury way!

Don't forget to thank the RFL. Always got to be a little bit controversial in a speech. 

"and I'd also like to thank BARLA for their difficult decision to support the grey squirrel in opposition to the RFL's red squirrel in the interests of them playing the devil's advocate.  It's due to their thankless devotion to taking difficult and unpopular decisions that we have such unity in our squirrel appreciation across England."

I said a little bit controversial! 

Trust a moderator to take the thread too far 😉
