No Trespassing: Violators will be eaten

Komodo dragons kill Indonesian fisherman

I don't mean to make light of a personal tragedy, but these animals have killed a number of people (mostly tourists) over the years:

(CNN) -- An Indonesian fisherman has been killed by Komodo dragons after he was attacked while trespassing on a remote island in search of fruit, officials said Tuesday.

The article mentions a particularly hair-raising account of stranded scuba divers who had to fend off the reptiles before they were rescued.

Here's an article on the Komodo you might find interesting. I heard the original story on NPR about the dangers of animal activism.

I enjoy the blog!

When will we learn--we must respect Mother Nature. And if someone has an idea that seems to work, we should stick with it. I think that's called wisdom.
