Holy Crap

This would probably induce PSH in me.

    He looked pissed didn’t he? No fear of the elephant. I wonder how the guide made out?

    I wouldn’t have an P’s left to S in. I’d just be H.
    Until I was eaten. Then S out in a few days. I wonder if – in that case – my pants would have made a good dental floss for the big cat?

    The footage showed that Pegu saw the tigress leaping and threw the metal ankush at it to defend himself. “The tigress saw the ankush coming, dodged it in mid-leap and took a swipe at Pegu without actually landing on the elephant, which had stepped back,” Menon said.

    “It all happened in a few seconds and before we knew what both Bodo and the guard had fallen down,” Dr Choudhary narrated. What now happened was even more amazing. As the tigress landed on the ground Joymala quickly pinned her down with her left fore foot and tried to control it with its trunk. The tigress struggled under this weight for at least half a minute roaring, as other people in the vicinity shouted and fired shots in the air. In this commotion another attempt was made to dart it, but even this shot was off the mark. The tigress finally struggled loose and ran away.

    “If it had not been for Joymala, both Bodo and the guard would have been badly injured or dead,” he said. Meanwhile, Joymala, which was trying to aggressively chase the tigress, was calmed by the CWRC veterinarian, who was holding on to the profusely bleeding mahout. “His fingers were hanging by few shreds of tissue and I tried to tourniquet the wounds,” he said.

    She was a lady. Not a he. The elephant saved the day.

    I always wondered what the big deal was about hunting in Africa.

    Now I have an idea.

    Saw this a while back over at Hell In A Handbasket – Big Cat, Big Guns

    Definitely explains why you want to do this sort of thing from on top of an elephant.

    Of course this wasn’t hunting. They were forestry officials driving the cat back from the village on protected lands. the full story. They tried firing a dart at the cat which enraged it and brought on the attack.
