This week in animal attacks

Cryptomundo has a good (is that the word for it?) round up of people attacked by animals in the past week or so.

A cougar attacked, killed and partially ate a New Mexico man living in a trailer, authorities announced on Tuesday, June 24, 2008.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, June 22, 2008, an adolescent male lose [sic] an arm during an alligator attack in Florida. The teenager was attacked by an 111/2-foot alligator, but managed to get away with his life but lost his arm.
Finally, in Kenya, Toroitich Kurere, 70, died at the Rift Valley Provincial General Hospital on Saturday, June 21, 2008 [...] The elderly man had fought off a hyena as it was attacking his son.
How unfortunate. Be careful, dudes.
