Wild Animal Encounters

Catch a wild animal off guard and it could fly, flee, or flay—you. In Kenya’s Tsavo National Park, for starters, a strange breed of lions has responded to the presence of people by accepting us. As dinner.

In the May/June issue’s “Among the Man-Eaters,” Philip Caputo tells how he tiptoed into the heart of Tsavo to look the human-hunters in the eyes.

By turns harrowing, heartbreaking, and awe-inspiring, Caputo’s experiences make it plain: Enter an animal’s domain and there’s no telling what might happen. But there’s nothing stopping you from telling what did happen. Which is what we’d like you to do right here…

Tell ADVENTURE about your most surprising wild-animal encounter. Also, has the wildlife watching industry made some fearsome predators more hunted than hunter?
