In an urban world where TV or the zoo are the only places so many of us see any wildlife at all, it’s easy to forget just how vulnerable people are in the presence of actual wild animals.
Don’t let the herbivore diet fool you into complacency. Even with animals that don’t want to eat you, if you let your guard down, things can go really bad for you in a hurry.
That’s the hard lesson one visitor to Yellowstone learned at the end of a bison’s horns.
The unidentified 25-year-old from Grove City, Ohio walked towards the bovine as it neared a boardwalk just north of Old Faithful, according to a press release.
As she got within ten feet of the animal, it gored her and tossed her ten feet into the air, officials said.
The victim suffered a puncture wound and other injuries and was taken to a hospital, authorities said. —NYPost
Bears and wolves are not the most dangerous animals you can encounter in the park. More people have been injured by bison than any other animal.
So keep your distance (75 feet recommended) and do not piss them off.
That expression about messing with the bull and getting the horns…? There’s a reason people say it.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
