Rhino Gores Tourist 5 Seconds After Photo - Stupid Is As Stupid Does
 
1 Attachment(s)
OK it's Friday.

This falls into the "what the hell were you thinking" category.

"Chantal Beyer and her husband Sven Fouche, left, pose for a photograph with rhinos at the Aloe Ridge Nature Reserve near Johannesburg South Africa last weekend. Just after the photo was taken, the closest rhino attacked Beyer and its horn penetrated Beyer's chest from behind, resulting in a collapsed lung and broken ribs."

Stupid is as stupid does.

I'm surprised more of this shit doesn't happen in Yellowstone with all of the times I've seen morons leaning out of car windows to touch buffalo or trying to walk up closer to elk to get a good photo.

That's the problem with modern living, we've outpaced Darwin by too wide of a margin.

Wow, this is a rare case. But one should be careful.

I bet most of us would have listened to the Tour Guide.

I hope she gets well soon.

I will sue the rhinos, the tour guide, the reservation, the country....wait, this is not US.

No damn way I would have listened to that tour guide. Rhinos are huge and aggressively territorial. Stupid.

Reports indicate the Rhino didn't like Sven Douche's Billabong shirt.

This has to fall under the joke about "guess what race this person is." Lol

(NO RACIAL)

The difference in this case is that the tour guide told them to get closer and was taking the picture.

I thought this thread was about Al Gore. I'd sue him anyway

I didn't realize left-leaning Republicans were so dangerous, or that Al was considered one. Always thought he was a Dem.

The game park owner was the dumbass who told them to get closer. How bout that?

"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."

You can see the rhino fixing to hit the target on her back.

Can you imagine that nasty long ass rhino horn going through your back and into your lungs?

JFC.
