Just Stand Closer
Here’s an instruction I wouldn’t follow and I doubt you would either: Stand closer to the rhino.
That’s what the so-called African wildlife expert and owner of a South Africa game park told one of his visitors. He wanted to get a better picture. Seconds after the picture’s taken, one of the two the rhinos attacks the woman, who is from Johannesburg. The pictures show she and her husband were only a few feet from the rhino when it gores the woman, resulting in a collapsed lung and broken ribs. The game reserve had no comment on the incident. Really? Of course we have stories like this in Montana from time to time with tourists and bison. This summer if someone tells you, “Stand closer to the buffalo,” plesae keep this story in mind, okay? DB
