Animal revenge

2011-10-12 12:09

As the video of a hartebeest knocking cyclist Even van der Spuy off of his bicycle during a mountainbike race in Pietermaritzburg has shown, strange situations can arise when people come into contact with wild animals.Watch a selection of some of our favourites:

After being attacked by a bull, this man walked away with his life and a few minor injuries, but he lost his pants and his pride.

This video shows a horse fighting back with its teeth and hooves after being beaten by a man in India. The man was lucky to walk away from the incident with only a few cuts and bruises.

In this shocking video, a woman came close to drowning off the coast of Hawaii after she got too close to a pilot whale.The whale bit her, then latched onto her ankle and dragged her into the ocean.

In the next video a group of people can be seen playing with a llama before it takes a particular interest in one of them and sends him running.

A white-tailed deer seems to be taking revenge for every animal that was ever killed for sport by pummelling this hunter with his hooves.
