A scientist is making his way through the blinding whiteness of a Russian snowstorm, when he is suddenly attacked by the largest cat on earth—an 800 pound Siberian tiger. The giant cat tears into his body, and the man’s fate seems sealed…then, inexplicably, the cat calls off the attack, and the man survives. What could have caused this apex predator to attack the man—only to then abandon its quarry? Though attacks by the tigers are rare, they occur nearly every year, and are most often deadly… Our experts investigate the secret life of this highly endangered animal to search for clues—but this tiger was not emaciated or old, as others which attack humans, nor had it been provoked by a dog, as was another case. Finally, we discover a surprising lead: the cat that attacked was not the only one in the snow that day…as the puzzle falls together, we find that the scientist had been tracking a female tigress in estrus—as had the giant male that seemed to have momentarily mistaken him for a rival suitor. Two brothers from Durban, South Africa on a 4-day safari face the unstoppable momentum of a 3,000-pound giant…the black rhinoceros. Rhinos are formidable creatures: they weigh as much as a pickup truck, top out at 40 mph.; have a 4 foot-long horn, armored skin. Anyone who tangles with one is in big trouble. BUT: the idea that they are ill-tempered is a myth. In fact, the behemoths attack only in extreme—and very rare—circumstances, preferring to run away than to engage in conflict. What has made this prehistoric giant unleash such an attack on the group of humans? What made them—and not the others in their group—the targets of the assault? The secret lies just beyond the hedgerow. Investigators search for what is causing rhinos – in three of Africa’s popular game parks – to turn aggressive. They note a striking similarity between the three incidents where the animal left its protective cover to attack: all these assaults were on walking safaris. Did the humans cause these attacks themselves? The thrill of chasing game is a powerful lure…and bringing home a photo of these amazing creatures – up close – validates the experience for some. But when we step foot in a land where big game rule, the tables may turn… and the hunter can become the hunted.
