The dangers of selfie sticks (and donkeys) are illustrated in this email from Wayne:

I’m listening to AMT322 where you talk about people with their wands of Narcissus taking photos of themselves with animals.

This reminded me of a recent trip to the New Forest, where we saw a young girl get done over by a juvenile donkey she was trying to take a selfie with. She got the poor animal in a headlock to take the photo, at which point the cute and cuddly equid head-butted her and then kicked her for good measure.

All three of us in the car (myself, my wife and my 8 year old son in the back) all said the same: “Well that serves her right.”

It amused us for the journey back to the camp site.

Have you ever had a dangerous close encounter with a wild beast? Or with an idiot who is having a close encounter with a wild beast? If it was non-fatal to all involved, step cautiously into the comments to tell us about it.

PS Here are some of the warning signs I saw around the geysers at Yellowstone National Park. THINK SAFETY, PEOPLE. Or, at the very least, think more than not at all.
