Some feline mayhem to report.
First, a cheetah petting gone horribly wrong:
Violet D'Mello mauled by 'tame' cheetahs at holiday safari park | Mail Online: "one of the beasts grabbed eight-year-old Camryn Malan, who was among other tourists in the enclosure, and began biting her leg.
Mrs D’Mello comforted the girl’s seven-year-old brother, Calum, telling him not to run so he would not aggravate the animals – but as she did so, the cheetahs turned on her.
The mother of two said: ‘I never imagined it would attack me because I was an adult. But the next thing I knew I was on the floor and the cheetah was right on top of me."
Her husband took photos while all this was going on, apparently not taking it seriously. My wife tells me I should, in case of a similar occurrence, abandon the camera and come to her rescue. (Thanks to Nik Nimbus for the news tip.)
Second, a leopard preferred not to be captured:
7 injured in leopard attack in Rajasthan, IBN Live News: "Seven persons, including some forest personnel, were injured when a leopard attacked them in Raghunathpura area in Chittoregarh district of Rajasthan, official sources said today. The incident took place yesterday when the animal attacked some villagers and forest personnel after they made an attempt to capture it, the officials said. The victims were admitted to a nearby hospital where their condition was stated to be stable"
Third, a pet lynx bit a woman on the arm:
NWCN.com Washington - Oregon - Idaho: ""There was a lynx cat - a pet that lived in the house and a girlfriend. The cat got jealous of the girlfriend, who was vacuuming, and it jumped on her and bit her," speculated Jenee Westbend, King County Animal Control officer.
Police and medics were called to the scene, but the lynx was still roaming inside the house. Medics waited outside until the lynx's owner came home and kenneled the cat."
I know I feel jealous of anybody who’s vacuuming.
Finally, video of a cute baby and a hungry lioness. I'm not sure I'd be as sanguine as this lady seems. (Thanks to Dan for the tip.)
