Rhino Charge

by Mudflap KLLL posted Jan 21 2013 1:47PM

Note to self: Next time someone urges you to "stand a little closer" to a rhinoceros, don't.

From this story on
When do you not listen to the African wildlife expert? When he tells you to stand closer to the rhino. That suggestion by a South African game park owner resulted in serious injuries to a 24-year-old woman from Johannesburg. The Beeld newspaper reported Tuesday that Chantal Beyer said the game park owner snapped pictures and suggested that she "stand just a little bit closer" seconds before the attack. Photos show Beyer and her husband only feet away from two rhinos.

According to the story, just after the photo got snapped, apparently, so did the rhino, which suddenly charged the couple. The wife was gored and suffered a collapsed lung and broken ribs. Bad deal for them, to be sure, but do you think they placed a little too much trust in their guide? Would you take a chance like that?
