There's a primal instinct in all animals to be protective and competitive of themselves, and that includes us. Read about these five people who could stand off to animals with slim chances...
5: Politician and bear
John Chelminiak, a Washington State politician, was walking his dogs one night, when a 150-pound black bear suddenly attacked him, springing from a bush. He was taken down, but got up every time he fell, so the bear couldn't get his neck. After a while of fighting, the bear ran away for no reason. His wife called an ambulance and described his condition:
"Within seconds, I see this lion over 20 feet from me just standing there looking at me. I could see just its head there in the grass, of course it scared the pants off of me," Britton told ABC's "Good Morning America Weekend." Dustin was afraid, but the lion seemed fearless. It came out of the bush and lunged at him. He was pushed back, and started attacking the animal with hischainsaw, aiming for the neck. The lion was later killed by wildlife officials. It was about 4-5 years old, and starving. Britton got away with a small puncture wound in his arm.
1: Drunk man vs. Shark
This one's for all the guys at the bar. Dragan Stevic was a wasted Serbian tourist at Egypt's Sharm-el-Sheikh who managed to take out a shark that had killed one and injured some other four people by landing on it after having thrown his drunk self off a high dive. Here's what his friend said: "Dragan climbed on the jumping board, told me to hold his beer and simply ran to jump. There was no time for me to react or to try to stop him, he just went for it"..."Dragan jumped high and plunged down to the sea, but didn't make as much splash as we thought he would"...
He was taken to a hospital to recover from alcohol poisoning. If I landed on a shark I would worry about broken bones and the like, but he'd apparently drunken so much beer that he didn't tense himself up before landing.
Well, that concludes my 5 Cases of Animals vs. Humans. I hope you learn something from these guys, but more importantly, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. These cases are one in a million.
