Note to self: Next time someone urges you to “stand a little closer” to a rhinoceros, don’t.
From this story on cbsnews.com:
_When do you not listen to the African wildlife expert? When he tells you to stand closer to the rhino. That suggestion by a South African game park owner resulted in serious injuries to a 24-year-old woman from Johannesburg. __The Beeld newspaper reported Tuesday that Chantal Beyer said the game park owner snapped pictures and suggested that she “stand just a little bit closer” seconds before the attack. Photos show Beyer and her husband only feet away from two rhinos._
According to the story, just after the photo got snapped, apparently, so did the rhino, which suddenly charged the couple. The wife was gored and suffered a collapsed lung and broken ribs. Bad deal for them, to be sure, but do you think they placed a little too much trust in their guide? Would you take a chance like that?
