"Life is beautiful", that's true but staying safe and enjoying life is a combination of luck and being prepared. I live one town away from where that chimp attacked a woman and was shot and killed by police. I guess each of us is aware of the dangers our particular environment presents, criminals, vicious dogs and wild animals, but who expects a 200lb chimp to attack? I carry a good tactical knife and if I had to use it I would not hesitate but from what I understand of this chimp attack it would be of little help. I won't go into the graphic details but the woman's injuries were horrific to say the least. I enjoy life but I don't kid myself to everyday dangers that exist, and while I used to think I was sort of alert and prepared this recent event really blew me away. Even the officer who shot the chimp was treated for shock, after hitting it several times the animal was still able to get back inside the house where it died in it's cage. I don't place all the blame on the chimp, there are plenty of folks who attempt to raise wild animals as house pets once again it has proven to be a bad idea!
