10. In mid-2007, Bokito the gorilla jumped a water-filled ditch that separated him from the public and attacked a woman, dragging her around and severely injuring her. She suffered fractures and more than 100 bite wounds. Bokito was eventually subdued with a tranquilizer gun. The woman he attacked visited his Rotterdam, Netherlands cage often. She would touch the cage glass often, make eye contact with him and smile at him, which he took as an aggressive display, just like when animals bare their teeth at us. So here’s a suggestion: never smile at a wild animal that could turn on you.
9. In 1989, Ellie Quo was told by his Kung Fu master that he had reached a level in the martial arts where he could kill wild animals with his bare hands. So Quo, a 32-year-old Australian, decided to do just that. Late at night, he snuck into the Melbourne Zoo, then into the lions, where there were many lions. The next morning, zoo keepers found only the fists of the fighter, and they were clutching tufts of red fur. So Confucius say: Don’t let Kung Fu master’s words go to your head, or you may lose it.
8. Seven years ago, on Christmas Day, just after the San Francisco Zoo had closed, three young men remained inside, and were believed to be drinking alcohol and taunting animals. They also had slingshots, and could have used them to shoot rocks at a 350-pound tiger named Tatiana. Whatever the reason, Tatiana jumped her enclosure and attacked them. Two of them, brothers, managed to run away, but left a blood trail. After Tatiana finished with 17-year-old Carlos Sousa, she went after the brothers, cornering them in a zoo café. She proceded to maul them and they only survived after police arrived and shot Tatiana to death. Perhaps the lesson to be learned here is: Don’t be stupid.
7. Let’s face it… pandas are JUST adorable! You just wanna go up to one and hug it. ….mmmmmm…. Well, that’s just what a very drunken man did at the Beijing Zoo in China. He wanted to cuddle with GuGu, the 240-pound giant panda there. Gugu showed him some love back by biting him on his legs. Later, a 15-year-old boy decided to get into Gugu’s enclosure to feed him. He did… with chunks of flesh from his legs. And yet again later, a man climbed into Gugu’s enclosure to retrieve a toy his child had thrown in there. Gugu attacked his legs so hard that workers had to pry his jaws open. I’m thinking Gugu is definitely a leg man…errr… panda.
6. After Jabari the gorilla was taunted by a bunch of kids, he climbed his enclosure at the Dallas Zoo and attacked four people, including a 3-year-old boy that he put into his mouth and started gnawing on his head and chest. Jabari was shot to death by a SWAT team. All of those who were attacked survived.
5. Seven dogs that were left to starve when their owner left for a two-week vacation let him know quickly just how hungry they were when he returned home. They attacked and ate him. A few days after the dog owner returned to his home in Indonesia, a neighborhood man noticed his luggage was still lined up on his front porch. He went to check and smell something foul and called police. After police arrived, they found the man’s skull in the kitchen and some of his body in the front of the house. Lesson here: NEVER let your animals go hungry.
4. After hearing what he said were voices from God, a 22-year-old man jumped into the lions’ area at the Buenos Aires Zoo and was treated as invisible by the two lions there. Well, that is, until he opened his mouth, took off his jacket and started taunting the lions with it. One lion attacked him and pinned him down and was biting him until a zoo official shot him with a tranquilizer gun. Incredibly, another man did the exact same thing a short time later, saying “Jesus will save you” to the lions. One lion attacked and was biting and scratching the man until, again, he was shot with the tranquilizer gun. Look, God can talk to us in many ways, but I don’t think he wants any of us messing around with lions… or snakes… or gorillas… just sayin…
3. Crowds at the London Zoo were warned not to taunt the 400-pound gorilla Kumbuka. But they did anyway. And Kumbuka busted through his weakened glass enclosure and went on a terrifying rampage. More than 100 visitors had to be locked up for their safety. Armed police and a police helicopter were scrambled to the scene. Kumbuka was tracked down and a tranquilizer gun was used. No one was reported injured in the incident last October. Lucky them.
2. Binky the polar bear was a big celebrity in Anchorage, Alaska back in the mid-90s. In 1994, he attacked a woman, Kathryn Warburton, who got too close to his cage to get a close-up photo. He bit into her leg and kept her shoe for three days before zookeepers could get it. Soon after that, he also attacked a drunken 19-year-old who wanted to swim in the same pool as Binky. Binky gave him some serious leg injuries instead. Lots of merchandise of Binky was sold, particularly merchandise showing him with Warburton’s shoe, with the slogan, “Send another tourist, this one got away.” Binky died a year later of liver failure.
1. In 1990, a chimpanzee was drowning in its enclosure pool at the Detroit Zoo. Without hesitation, truck driver Rick Swope jumped into the enclosure, grabbed the 135-pound chimp and brought it back to the land area. At no time did the distressed chimp try to hurt the man. Zoo keepers thanked Swope for his heroic actions and said the chimp would have died had it not been for the rescue. Now there’s one enclosure entry on this list that actually made sense. And this time, it looks like someone WAS looking out for the two of them.
