Date April 26, 2018

Wild animals - that’s not something we see every day, but they scare the hell out of us whenever we see them somewhere in the open space. The key thing people need to remember: they are not against us just because we are different.

On the contrary, they have their valid reasons, such as fear, hunger, territory, or cub protection and even anger for being aggressive towards human beings.


Dylan McWilliams is one of those lucky ones who survived the attack of three different wild animals. These were a snake, a bear, and a shark. The man is 20 years old, and he’s from Colorado. When enjoying the Pacific waves, he felt a hit on his leg, and luckily, it required only 7 stitches after he reached the shore.

His encounter with the bear he describes like this:

This black bear grabbed me by the back of the head, and I was fighting back, poking it in the eye until it let me go.

The least deadly was the attack of the rattlesnake:

I was walking down a trail and I thought I kicked a cactus but couldn't see one, and then saw a rattlesnake all coiled up. There was a little venom so I did get a bit sick for a couple of days.
