Would you go near Africa's wildlife? America's wildlife are just as dangerous.
Remember, wildlife is WILD! If they feel threatened, they will attack.
Give them space, so you stay safe.

Safe Distances from Wildlife:
REASONS TO GIVE 'EM SPACE
Wildlife is WILD. Any animal you approach may attack without warning.
Bison weigh 2,000 pounds, and can jump over a 6 foot fence from a stand still!
Moose are taller than a horse (5' to 6.5' at shoulder), weigh more than a bear (up to 1,800 pounds) and run faster than a human (up to 35 m.p.h.).
Mountain lions have powerful limbs and can leap as high as 15 feet and as far as 40 feet.
A bear runs FASTER than the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt.
(For best viewing: start the Bolt video; at starting gun, start the Bear video.)
Bolt = 23 mph/37 K/h Bear = 35 mph/56 K/h
If an animal approaches you, it is your responsibility to
move a safe distance away, not the animal's.
Don't let this happen to you.
