crocodileMEXICO – A 7-year-old boy playing near the Barra Santa Ana estuary was eaten alive by a crocodile in front of his horrified father.

It happened on Sunday afternoon as Manuel Abraham and his father played with a soccer ball at the edge of the river. After the ball rolled into the water, the boy instinctively ran to pick it up. That’s when the crocodile struck.

According to witnesses, the crocodile sprang from underneath the water and clamped down on the poor kid’s head. It then dragged him into the water in front of his helpless father and onlookers.

Despite attempts to rescue the boy, Abraham and the crocodile disappeared into the water. The boy’s remains have yet to be found, but not because of a lack of trying.

After the attack, city officials deployed the military, civil protection groups and fisherman to find the crocodile and the boy’s remains. This reaction probably stems from the fact that this was the eighth crocodile attack in the Bara Santa Ana estuary in the last two years.…

Natalya PasternakRUSSIA – Natalya Pasternak is lucky to be alive after she was mauled by a bear, then rescued after the bear buried her to be eaten later.

I don’t normally post stories out of Russia, but I could not pass up this nightmare of a story – especially since being eaten alive by an animal is one of my biggest fears.

The 55-year-old was hiking with her dog and a friend when a female bear attacked the group. The 4-year-old bear first attacked the dog before turning its attention on Pasternak. Obviously able to run faster than Pasternak, her unarmed friend ran to get help.

The bear continued to maul Pasternak until it thought she was dead. The bear then dragged her nearby where it buried the poor woman under some leaves to eat at a later time.

When wildlife protection officers arrived at the scene, the bear was still there and charged at the group. They responded by shooting and killing the bear. That’s when they noticed Pasternak’s bloody hand sticking out from a pile of leaves.…

Pit Bull ChallengeSOMEWHERE, USA – A video of a pit bull attack is making the rounds today and I thought I would post it here as well because some of the posts are not giving all of the details behind the attack.

The attack happened last year while a woman was participating in an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge with her grandchildren. After announcing her own nominations, her grandchildren dump water on her head.

As she does a little screaming and shaking of her head, a dog comes over and latches on to the side of her face.

According to the victim’s daughter, her mother wasn’t ready to share the video until now and wanted to wait until her wounds had healed. The video was posted by YouTube user emaustin102387, who wrote:

She lived to tell the tale of it and didn’t want this released until she was ready. This should serve as a warning to all pet owners. Unless you are going to take the time to make an animal a pet then it will remain an animal.

Hunter MastalerHESPIRIA, CA – Hunter Mastaler, 4, was attacked by his father’s police dog so severely that he had to have his leg amputated below the knee.

Michael Mastaler, a K9 officer of the Rialto Police Department returned from a two day trip to Big Bear where he had run a boot camp for at-risk youth. He let his 7-year-old Belgian shepherd, Jango, out of a large backyard kennel before going back inside where his son, Hunter, was playing video games.

Mastaler claims that in the span of 2 minutes while he was upstairs changing, his son opened the sliding glass door and went outside. Mastaler’s wife was not home at the time, having gone shopping with their 18-month-old son.

A short time later, neighbors heard Hunter’s screams as he was being attacked by Jango. Jeff Houlemard knocked down a fence to get to the boy and was able to pry the dog’s mouth open, releasing the child’s leg from its mouth.

According to Houlemard, “I kicked the dog, but it still didn’t let him go, so I whipped him around and pulled the mouth open.…

Deriah SolemSAINT CHARLES, MO – Derek Solem, 32, and Sharon Williams, 29, have been charged with two felonies after the family pit bull mix attacked and killed 22-month-old Deriah Solem last year.

The couple left their daughter and her two older brothers in the care of the child’s grandmother, who also lived at the home. Police said the grandmother had just finished feeding the girl and placed her on the floor in a potty chair right before the family’s 80-pound Staffordshire Terrier attacked her.

The dog bit bit the girl in the neck, face, back and stomach. The grandmother lost the tips of two fingers on each hand when she tried to pry the dog’s mouth off the Deriah. The dog did not stop attacking Deriah until a neighbor repeatedly stabbed it with a steak knife

Deriah was rushed to the hospital where she would die from her injuries two days later. The 10-year-old dog survived the initial stabbing, but was later euthanized.

Police originally said that no charges would be filed against the couple, but after an investigation by the prosecutor’s office was completed, the couple were indicted after the case was taken to the county’s grand jury.…

ferretDARBY BOROUGH, PA – A one month-old-baby is missing a good portion of her face after having it chewed off by the family’s pet ferrets.

Skyy Isabelle Fraime was sitting in a car seat on the floor of the dining room when she was mauled by three ferrets that had gotten out of their cloth cage. Her father was upstairs sleeping during the attack, while her mother, Jessica Benales, was in an upstairs bathroom.

When Benales heard the baby screaming and went to check on her, she found her child in the car seat with the ferrets on top of her. It was immediately apparent the ferrets had mangled 25% of her face.

“I’ll be 45 years in June in Darby (with the police department), and this is the worst I’ve ever seen,” borough Police Chief Robert Smythe said. “The baby’s nose was gone, and a lot of the flesh from under the nose was gone and the cheek. It had little holes all over the head from where the ferrets were on her.”

There isn’t a clear indication of how long the baby was left alone, but it was undoubtedly enough time for several ferrets to eat her fucking face.…

happy bearHENAN PROVINCE, CHINA – Some horrific images of 9-year-old Zhang Chien are circulating online after the boy put his arm inside a bear’s cage at Hebin Park Zoo, and the bear ripped it off.

Zhang was at the zoo with his grandfather when he climbed over a safety rail and reached inside a bear’s cage to try and give it food. The bear ended up grabbing the boy’s right arm, instead.

As Chien screamed, people tried beating the bear of the boy for 10 minutes until the bear finally ripped off Chien’s arm. It would take zoo official another 20 minutes to retrieve the arm from inside the bear’s cage.

Pictures of the poor kid are now online, showing him standing alone, in shock, with a bone protruding from his shoulder where is arm used to be. He was taken to the hospital but doctors were unable to save the arm.

I think parents in China are required by law to throw one-armed children in the trash, so Chien’s parents are understandably upset and are blaming the zoo.…

Black BearWEST MILFORD, NJ — In more “horrifying ways I never want to die” news, 22-year-old Daten Patel was possibly killed by a black bear while hiking with friends in New Jersey’s Apshawa Preserve.

Patel was with a group of five men hiking through the 576-acre wooded area when they were confronted by a 300-pound black bear. When the bear began stalking them, the group scattered in different directions.

Four of the men were able to regroup, but were unable to find Patel. Two hours after calling police, the West Milford Search and Rescue team found Patel’s body being guarded by the bear.

“Evidence at the scene indicated that the victim had been attacked by a bear,” West Milford Police Chief Timothy C. Storbeck said.

Multiple attempts were made to scare the bear away, but the bear had to be euthanized. The bear’s body was taken to a state lab where it will be examined for clues as to why it pursued the group.

Kelcey Burguess, principal biologist and leader of the state Division of Fish and Wildlife’s black bear project, said the bear could have been predisposed to attack but was probably just looking for food.…

NoooopePRICE, UT – Despite loving animal attack stories, I wasn’t going to write this one up until I saw pictures of the damaged camper that proved the family was not exaggerating.

The Graham family were camping in Book Cliffs Saturday night when they had an unwelcome guest who was very persistent in getting inside their camper.

Sami Graham said she was putting her four kids to bed inside the camper, while her husband was out deer hunting, when she heard a knock on the door. She opened the door but didn’t see anyone there.

Moments later, she heard a violent scratch on the side of the camper and decided to look out a window to see what was going on.

“I went over to my kitchen window and pulled up my blinds and looked out. I had to put my face pretty close to the window and there he was face-to-face with me.”

The “he” she is talking about was a 6-foot tall black bear standing on its hind legs peering into the kitchen window.…

Roxanne GroveMACHIAS, WA – Four years ago we reported on an otter in Florida that went on a bloody rampage. Now we have an otter in Washington that attacked a little boy and his grandmother, sending them both to the hospital.

Bryce Moser and his grandmother, Roxane Grove, were swimming in the Pilchuck River Thursday morning when Grove heard her grandson screaming bloody murder.

“All of a sudden I just heard him scream for his life,” Tabitha Moser said. Her son was the boy who was attacked. “He was just bobbing up and down in the water and as he came up there was something all the way on top of his head.”

As she got close to the boy, she could see that the object on her grandson’s head was one very pissed off otter. “I could see that it was biting into his head and it had its claws around him,” said Grove.

Her maternal instincts kicked in, and Grove began wrestling the four-foot long otter of the little boy’s head.…

Craig SytsmaMETAMORA TWP, MI – Craig Sytsma went out for a jog after work Wednesday afternoon, only to be attacked and killed by two Cane Corsos.

The 46-year-old was two miles into his run when a witness mowing his lawn noticed Sytsma was being attacked by two large dogs, grabbed a shotgun and tried to stop the attack.

“He sees the gentleman being attacked by a couple of animals,” said Metamora Township Police Chief David Mallett. “He decides to go down and help him, I don’t know how far he got to them before he decided, ‘I need something else,’ so he went back to his place and got a gun and came back down.”

The man was able to shoot one of the dogs, but did not kill it. However, it did stop them from attacking Sytsma. By this time, police had already received a call about a shooting and a man with a gun. When they arrived on the scene they quickly realized they had just arrived on the scene of an animal attack.…

Gabriel GarciaLAS CRUCES, NM – I totally missed this story last week but what the hell – I like it. Gabriel Garcia is facing a slew of serious charges after the woman he allegedly held against her will was able to escape after his pit bull turned on him.

The 26-year-old woman told police she met Garcia at a party where he stole her car keys. He later messaged her via Facebook about returning the keys and the two arranged a time to meet.

Garcia picked the woman up, purchased some alcohol and took her to his home. When the woman asked for her keys and a ride back home, Garcia refused to do either and began making sexual advances towards her. That’s when she called 911.

When Garcia realized she was on the phone with 911, he pushed her down a flight of stairs before siccing his pit bull on the woman. But instead of attacking the woman, the dog attacked Garcia, biting him in the upper arm.

Now extremely angry, Garcia grabbed a hammer and dragged the woman into his bedroom by her hair.…
