    Don't take photo close to a Rhino

    Photo Taken Just Before Rhino Attack
    http://www.weather.com/news/rhino-at...woman-20130117

    "The paper said that just after the photo was snapped, the rhino attacked, and its horn penetrated Beyers' chest from behind, resulting in a collapsed lung and broken ribs, the paper said. The Aloe Ridge Hotel and Nature Reserve, where the incident took place, declined to comment Tuesday."
    Olympus E-PL1 with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Canon 300HS, Fuji F70, Panasonic ZS15.

    I read about it. Never trust animals that are unknown to you and don't know you.
    I was overseas recently and wanted to stand close to a domestic bull but he looked nervous and restless. The owner assured it would be okay but I took the precaution and left the beautiful beast alone.

    Any animal that gets annoyed with you will attack.

    This guy decided to ignore the park warden's warnings to keep 50 metres away from deer:

    Pretty contemptuous to stand with your back to a close by large powerful wild animal
