Actually, the bunny gets it regardless of whether you read my blog or not. Those of a nervous and bunny loving disposition need not click on the following link 😉
It’s bad news this week for those who were hoping some divine intervention would help humanity overcome its power-thirsty animal attackers.
A man in Ukraine set out to prove that the Lord would protect him when he clambered into the lion enclosure at a Kiev zoo Sunday, The St Petersburg Times reports.
An official at the zoo said: “The man shouted ‘God will save me, if he exists’, lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions.”
The man got his answer when an affronted lioness grabbed him by the throat and killed him in front of horrified visitors. The official helpfully explained: “A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery.”
To end on a distressing note, our low country bunny drownings correspondent Robin Pollard provides this translation of a story appearing on dutch site NieuwNieuws:
The bird grabbed the cute bunny by its ear, with it squirming and screaming it flew to a ditch and drowned it, after which without care for proportion it swallowed it with little difficulty.
Frankly upsetting images of the attack are available here.
Can’t we all just get along?
