It is quite common for famous people to die in strange circumstances. However, drugs and alcohol are the most likely suspects. Being killed by an animal attack ranks as lame in Hollywood. However, many met their fate this way.
“14 Famous People Shockingly Killed In Animal Attacks” is one article that will make you think twice before offering your banana to a monkey at the local zoo, or before caressing that stray dog with water in its eyes. Although most deaths presented here involved animals that are notorious for their killing abilities, some are rather bizarre and unexpected.
Don’t expect details of how the attacks went on and what body parts were bitten, as we have a care towards all the members of our audience. Blood loss, septicemia, or drowning, this are just of the few ways in which you can die if you don’t obey basic rules of handling animal behavior.
Keep in mind that every animal was born a killer, and even those cute looking kittens want to put you permanently to sleep.
1. Timothy Treadwell
Timothy Treadwell was an American environmentalist and documentary maker, who was mauled by the same bear he was supposed to study.
Until this point, nothing seems unusual. You step the invisible line Mother Nature sets for you, and you receive a punishment. However, Timothy Treadwell was not your average city folk that fails to understand the wilderness. With 13 summers spent studying the grizzly bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska, Timothy was probably the person with the most accurate understanding of the beasts’ behavior.
He died together with his visiting girlfriend, Amie Huguenard, and the horrific scene got an audio recording. “Grizzly Man,” by Werner Herzog, is a documentary to watch if you want more on the topic.
