This article was written for two main reasons. I personally had to endure a war between myself and an animal. A decade ago, I fought a bull dog for 30 minutes, trying to distract it. I would not be in one piece if it were not for a neighbour and a driver who helped me get rid of the problem, yet in the wrong way.
1. Steve Irwin vs. Stingray:
Better known as the Crocodile Hunter, Irwin was a wild man who performed stunts involved species of many kinds. His show the Crocodile Hunter was shown in 130 countries and had 50 million viewers. Sadly, his love for animals came to an abrupt end. He was pierced in the chest by a stingray and died.
2. Shannon Ainslie vs. Great White Sharks:
Not many people battle the great white sharks and can live to tell the tail. While surfing with his brother and friends, Ainslie was ambushed by 2 Great White Sharks. Thankfully, he survived. With 3 stitches and two reattached fingers, Ainslie still holds scars from the ambush. This; however, does not keep him from surfing.
3. Man vs. Kangaroo:
This is one of the most bizarre fights I’ve ever heard of. In China, a man dresses up like a clown and fights a kangaroo. Kangaroos are great fighters especially their forepaw jabs, grappling, and their own unique style of kickboxing.
4. Man vs. Leopard:
A number of people in the town of Nisak decided to thrown stones at a leopard to distract it. The leopard caught on to them and kidnapped a man who was one of those disturbing the leopard. The spectators ended up saving the man and were able to get rid of the leopard by clubbing it to death.
5. James Morrow vs. Alligator:
This fight ended well. Morrow was snorkeling in Florida. While snorkeling, he found his head inside of an alligator. He is one of the few to have lived to survive. The alligator put Morrow’s head to its taste buds and let go.
6. Mateus Araujo/Grandfather vs. Anaconda:
Araujo was playing in a park in Brazil with his friends when an Anaconda tightened itself around his body. The 16 ft. anaconda was about to make food out of Araujo when the grandfather came to save the day. He hit the anaconda over the head for 30 minutes before it disappeared.
7. Ape vs. Tourist:
This actually happened to one tourist on the same trip as myself in Gibaltrar. The tourist decided to eat ice cream as he was watching apes. The ape loved ice cream and decided to mount on the tourist’s head. The tourist did not see the money mounting and accidentally hit it in the genitals. The ape came back even angrier. In the end that stubborn tourist survived, but did not give the ice cream away.
8. Bull Vs. Matador:
In Spain it is common to use the Bull for entertainment. In fact 1000s are killed in a fight between a human matador and the bull. Many matadors really risk their lives, especially when charged by a bull.
9. Spartan Vs. Wolf:
This was a great scene in the movie 300. Zack Snyder did a good job and the scene was well portrayed.
10. Me vs. Dog:
My whole street was terrorized by this bull dog on our street. The dog would never be leashed and would chase neighbours on the block. As I was cornered by the dog who was on the road, I tried to lead it away to another direction. Sadly, it was lead right into an oncoming car. This was after 30 minutes of me holding on to dear life.
