Life is so fragile and unpredictable. A plane crash, being attacked by an animal, and other fatal accidents can happen at any moment. When you look this list of photos taken before tragedy struck, you will learn to appreciate and enjoy the simple but wonderful things of life better than before.
This woman in the photo could see how her worst fear was coming true when a Stingray came closer and latched onto her back. As we can see, she cried desperately in terror.
A Closer Encounter With The Polar Bear
This woman jumped into the polar bear enclosure in the zoo. And this turned out to be a fatal experience where she was almost killed by serious wounds made by the polar bear. Eventually, she also faced legal issues due to the zoo showed charges against her for disturbing the peace of animals and visitors of the zoo.

The famous Australian wildlife adventurer Steve Irwin (a.k.a “The Crocodile Hunter”) had a shocking death when a Stingray struck its tail on his chest making him suffer a heart attack while he was filming an episode of his show.
Dragged By A Feline
This photo is a reminder when you are visiting a Safari, please do not get out of the car. This incident implied a woman who had a fight with the driver of the white car and decided to get out of the car. Sadly, she was dragged by a tiger and never came back.
A Surprise Shark Attack
This 13-year-old surfing champion decided to go surfing in the off-limits area for getting bigger waves, however, he received an unexpected surprise: he was attacked by a shark. Our advice: never go off-limits especially in the beaches.
A Documentary With A Tragic End
Nat Geo has a TV show that a team of researchers throws several things to make great white sharks to come out of the water for marking them and do several measures to then return them to the sea. Unfortunately, while two brothers were padding, a predator suddenly emerged and killed one of them.
An Unexpected Surfing Partner
Seth Mead was surfing without noticing that a shark was in the waves too. Eventually, the shark attacked him but fortunately, he managed to escape with just some injuries.
A Crazy Swimmer
Swimming is something so pleasant. But what about swimming with a man-eating snake? That’s insane! And this woman decides to go to the water with such companion.
A Sticky Companion
And we are not talking about this guy’s wife. When he decided to dive on the beach of Australia and headed back to the shores he felt he wasn’t alone. He had an octopus which latched onto his back. Eventually, it was removed with a lot of time and patience.
An Elephant Getting Closer
A couple was touring on a Safari on their car when they received a big surprise. A huge elephant was standing on the way and put its trunk around the car. Fortunately, nobody was harmed after that close encounter. Maybe the couple has plans to buy a bigger car after such experience.

If you decide to go camping in a wildlife sanctuary, it’s better to have a gun with you in case of an unexpected surprise like this. However, we have to clarify this is a staged photo.
An Alligator Suspect
This cop had parked his car on the road and was standing to hear a report when suddenly an alligator came out and gave him a very scared surprise. Even having a gun, he never felt safe with that alligator so close.
A Dangerous Expedition
Sharks are known for attack things or beings that have any resemblance to their preys. This guy chose the wrong moment and the wrong place to go paddling and let’s pray that the shark did not cause him any harm.
A Wild Chase
Well, this hunter is not having a good day. He went on a wild boar hunt but now he became the prey on this chasing. Wild boars are very aggressive, so if you see one, please stay away from them.
When The Tables Are Turned – Part I
This hunter hunted a stag and was posing for a pic to show his prize. However, he didn’t notice that a mountain lion was also interested in the hunter’s prey.
When The Tables Are Turned – Part II
Two hunters were posing for a victorious photo after hunting a black bear. But they didn’t know that this might be their last pic. Another black bear was looking at them ferociously from the background. Bears can become more aggressive when they feel that there is a real threat to their group or to themselves.
Endangered But Not Unharming
This man turns his back confident that he hunted down a leopard. However, it turns out that the predator is still alive and come back with a ferocious attack.

A Particular Surfing Partner
One day the surfing champion Mick Fanning went for surfing at the J-bay in South Africa, he felt that something hit hard on his surfboard. When he looked back, a big shark was chasing him. Luckily, the predator only hit the board without causing any harm to him.
When the Ducks Attack
Ducks are supposed to be harmless creatures. But that doesn’t mean one person could take a silly selfie while you’re pointing a finger towards a duck. Remember, ducks are color blind so they cannot distinguish a finger from a worm.
A Chasing Bear
Bears are not aggressive unless they are disturbed. A hiker from New Jersey seems to forget that principle and decides to take a photo of a black bear when he was hiking in the woods. Sadly, the bear portrayed in the photo attacked him after the pic was taken.
Goats Are Not The Best Pets
Maybe most of the people might wonder what kind of harm can produce a pet goat. But this photo may convince them that cats and dogs are the best options for a home pet than a goat.
Looking Closer the White Tiger
A visitor who went to a zoo in New Delhi wanted to take a closer look at the rare white tiger so he climbed on its enclosure. Tragically, that terrible decision was the last; when he fell and the animal approached him, the feline attacked him causing mortal wounds.
The Last Flight of The MH17
MH17 was an airplane which was crashed in Ukraine with no survivors. This is the last photo taken by a passenger who boarded the fateful flight.
NYPD Solves a High-Profile Turtlenapping
The New York City Police Department makes headlines every day, but it is not every day that the NYPD makes headlines for solving a turtle kidnapping case. But kudos go to the NYPD for solving the disappearance of a beloved resident of Alley Pond Environmental Center in Queens, 100-year-old African spurred tortoise, Millennium.
A Century of Millennium at Alley Pond
Millennium could have been a youthful, 11-year-old turtle when the 655-acre Alley Pond Park was acquired by the City of New York in 1929. When Millennium found his, her, or its way to the park, the Alley Pond was the source of water that the town of Flushing used for, well, flushing. Millennium survived the construction of the Long Island Expressway across the park, the creation of a golf course, and the founding of the Alley Pond Environmental Center at 228-06 Northern Boulevard in Queens in 1972.
Or maybe Millennium wasn’t around for any of those events. Although Millennium undoubtedly weighs about 100 pounds, and is larger than many of the children who come to visit him every day the park is open, the turtle rescuers who found the intrepid animal believe he could be a mere 17 years old or possibly as much as 100 years old. Either way, visitors to the park regularly ask to see him. And that is how they learned he was missing.
A Shocking Tortoise Disappearance
When visitors asked to see Millennium on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 18, 2017, Millennium was nowhere to be found. The attendants had no difficulty locating Millennium’s companion turtle Mini-Me, but even checks of video surveillance cameras showed no sign of the celebrity turtle. We think of tortoises as moving slowly, but actually they can move quickly, blending in with trees and grasses, so the park staff held out hope that Millennium might just be taking a little vacation looking for a different source of grass and grubs. But when there was no trace of Millennium the next day, they had no choice but to call the police. They were afraid they had a Code 597, abuse of an animal.
Millennium Returns from Connecticut
Fortunately, a Connecticut resident with a conscience made the reunion of Millennium with his young fans possible. And helped the police nab the turtlenappers’ accomplice Shawn Waters in the process.
Thirty-seven year old Shawn Waters loves turtles. He kept small turtles and other animals in the apartment he shared with his mother in Queens. On the afternoon of July 18, Waters was approached by two men who had cut a hole in the back of Millennium’s enclosure and absconded with the famous reptile. They made a deal with Waters to sell him the stolen turtle, and Waters started to take Millennium home in a stolen shopping cart. But no sooner did he have Millennium in his clutches than he realized his mother would never let him keep Millennium at home.
Waters hatched a plan to cover up his crime and get a smaller turtle his mother would approve. A man in Stamford, Connecticut had placed an ad on Craigslist to sell his musck turte. Waters struck a deal to swap reptiles and get $300 cash in the process. (Ordinarily, a turtle of Millennium’s 2 foot by 2-1/2 foot size and gentle watermelon-eating habits would have fetched about $2500, according to park officials.) Waters, who does not own a car, took a commuter train with Millennium to Connecticut, where he sealed the deal.
But by this time the police were checking turtle transactions on Craigslist. They located the buyer, who surrendered the turtle, which was returned safely to Alley Pond Park.
Waters was arrested and later sentenced to six months in jail at Rikers Island. His mother reports that he hopes to get his license to work as a security guard back when he gets out of jail.
