How To Survive Being Attacked By These 11 Dangerous Animals

We all secretly fantasize about it – fighting animals. Who hasn’t daydreamed about valiantly fending off an angry shark with underwater kung-fu, or defeating a pack of wolves by giving them such a fierce look that they accept you as their Alpha? Just me?

Reality isn’t quite so romantic. And the truth is that if an apex predator wants you to be food, you can’t really do much about it. These tips are some generally sound advice about how to deal with toothy nasties if you encounter one another in the wild. If you’re actually planning on being somewhere where your turf will overlap with theirs, do your homework more thoroughly than just reading this post. But who knows, maybe one of these factoids will surface from the back of your head just as a pair of jaws are getting uncomfortably close to it.




Tigers are one of the most deadly animals on the planet. They’re one of the few apex predators who sometimes target humans for food. Between 1800 and 2009, there were over 373,000 tiger attacks on people. If you’re facing off with one, stand your ground. Never, ever run, or even back up. Make yourself look as big as possible by waving your arms in the air, puffing your chest out, putting children on your shoulders and screaming. If the tiger actually attacks you, there’s not much you can do but try to fight back and hope for the best.

• Don’t run

• Don’t turn your back on the tiger

• Make yourself look big

• Pray
