Controversial naturalist and filmmaker John Varty has been mauled by a tiger in the unlikely location of South Africa. Varty keeps tigers there as part of a bizarre conservation effort.
The clip above, from a Varty film, shows some fascinating behavior, as a rock python eats a leopard cub--and then has to deal with its mother.
Tiger Mauls Wildlife Filmmaker John Varty - Yahoo! News:
"A South African conservationist and filmmaker known for daring photography of wild animals is in intensive care after he was attacked by a tiger on his private game reserve.
John Varty, 61, is on a ventilator recovering from surgery for his injuries, including several puncture wounds and two broken ribs. A spokesperson at his Tiger Canyons reserve described it as a "bad attack," but was hopeful he would be able to make a full recovery."
