19) From the Daily Mail: Forced to the ground and with blood pouring from her head, this British holidaymaker had a miraculous escape after being attacked by supposedly tame cheetahs.Violet D’Mello was visiting a wildlife park with her husband Archie during a trip to South Africa for her 60th birthday. But their day out went horrifically wrong when two cheetahs turned on her, knocking her to the ground and biting her legs and head in a horrifying attack. And her husband? He carried on taking photographs, saying he did not quite realize what was happening. The attack took place at a wildlife park where tourists can pay to pet cheetah brothers Mark and Monty, both hand-reared and said to be tame. ‘It started scratching me really badly and then I could feel the other one come up too and one of them got my neck in its mouth. ‘I was just screaming and trying to get my hands up around my neck to protect myself, but I was being bitten all over my legs and down my side near my kidneys. ‘People all around were screaming, and I had no idea how I would escape. Something inside me just said, “Don’t move. Don’t move at all. Don’t react, just play dead”. ‘Eventually someone came and chased them off me and my husband picked me up off the floor.’ The housewife, from Aberdeen, was bleeding heavily from cuts to her legs, head and stomach, and needed stitches in hospital.

Virtually the entire 150,000 population of Pacific brant stops at Izembek. So do 70 percent of migrating Steller’s eiders, an endangered species that eats tiny invertebrates, clams, shrimp, and copepods clinging to eelgrass leaves. So it’s also no surprise that environmentalists are fighting a proposal by an Aleut village to build a road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge for land access to an all-weather airport.
