Wildlife continues attacks on show hosts

http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/ande...e-ragdoll.html

Ok, so I am not searching the wires for wildlife hosts that are being attacked but here's another one. The one thing these episodes highlight is that while these guys are very good at what they do they are still dealing with wild animals that are at times unpredictable. I must say I like Jeff Corwin and think he is funny and enjoyable to watch and can not imagine what was going through his mind as he was grabbed. I think his trying to one up Simon King was a bit much though . I actually think it is amazing things like this don't happen more frequently. I can't imagine trying to tape a show and handle poisonous snakes at the same time.
Enjoy this story.
From your entertainment editor.

Even though no one has replied, I thought I might mention the video is now up on cnn.com.

OUCH!!!

Yes it is amazing this doesn't happen a lot more.

Who is that other Aussie guy? He had a special on trying to find a king cobra, he found one in the wild, it was gigantic and he was handling it and getting very close to it.

Now of course the behavior seems more reckless

Eric: thanks for the entertainment, after a very long day in the field (with no film crew) I have to say I giggled at this animal encounter. It might well save his life as Jeff will likely find a little more respect for what can happen to him.
