This chick must have watched one too many Disney flicks. It is NEVER a good idea to assume wild animals are safe and friendly. Especially if they’re big enough to be a threat to you.
There’s a big difference between a bison and a bunny rabbit. If a bunny doesn’t like what you’re doing, it will run away. If a Bison doesn’t like what you’re doing, it will destroy you.
This is even MORE true if you’re dumb enough to approach its calf. Bison have no way to distinguish the difference between a photographer and a predator. That’s a lesson one photographer learned the hard way.
In Custer State Park in South Dakota, a sizeable herd of bison blocked a road. Because they can. They’re bigger than you, and really, what are you going to do about it, anyway?
With traffic at a dead stop, one woman thought this would be the perfect opportunity to snap some pictures.
By itself, not a bad idea, if you do it right.
NARRATOR: This woman did NOT do it right.
See for yourself what happens if you get to close to a calf in this herd.
In the animal kingdom, the man of the house often defends his own.
This chick learned that the hard way.
It could have been worse.
She lost her pants, but not her life.
Lesson learned. Just because the animals are in a state park doesn’t mean they are TAME.
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife. –Ted Nugent
