A South African woman on safari was seriously injured when a rhinoceros gored her in the back moments after a game park owner allegedly suggested she stand closer to the animal for a photo.

How unforunate for that poor girl. People seem to forget how dangerous wild animals can be, especially something as massive and powerful as a Rhino. They seem to think if the animal lets them close, theyre friendly or unthreatened...I always think to myself its a miracle Jane Goodall never had her face ripped off by those primates.

What an awful thing to happen, especially as when enjoying such a beautiful thing as nature and all it's creations. As Phoenix stated, people often forget how dangerous wild animals are. They are WILD, not tamed beasts. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery for the couple and hopefully some form of punishment for the game park owner.

They should put the park owner in jail. That was really stupid a move.

She is lucky to still be alive after that. People are to trusting around wild animals

Got to wonder sometimes about some peoples ignorance towards wild animals, if the game park owner had told her to put her hand in its mouth I wonder if she actually would without question.

I hope she recovers well and if ever goes on another safari, does not try to stroke the lions.
