animal attack

Summary: Funny pictures of the conflicted relationship mankind has with the animal kingdom.

Have you ever seen a graphic or violent picture in the news or on the internet, and after empathizing with the victim, stopped to ask, “Why didn’t the photographer help? Why was he or she taking a picture?” We might wonder the same thing about the men and women taking the pictures below. While watching their friends or family being chased by every manner of wild animal, instead of doing what every conscientious friend would do, lending a hand, getting involved, putting down the damn camera, they are yucking it up in hopes that everything turns out okay, leaving nothing but a hysterical photo as a reminder.


One wonders if the “good Samaritan law” used in the last episode of Seinfeld, in which Jerry and Elaine were convicted for videotaping an obese man being attacked instead of helping, was a real thing, if these people being bitten by dogs, chased by hippos, ravaged by sea gulls, and mauled my monkeys could use these very pictures the photographer chose to take instead of helping to present before a judge and say, “he could have helped me but he took pictures instead!”
