Mirror A tourist has been bitten by a crocodile after reportedly posing next to the enormous reptile while taking a selfie. The 41-year-old French woman was visiting Khao Yai national park in Thailand with her husband. Reports suggest the woman wanted a picture near the crocodile and the pair squatted down near the animal. The crocodile then reportedly bit the woman in the thigh while the picture was being taken. Pictures from the scene show the woman being taken away from the area by rescuers. She can be seen with a large bandage on her leg as worried onlookers watch on. She was rushed to hospital where she is now being treated for her injuries, Matichon online reported.
A genius move by this French tourist in Thailand, who saw a crocodile while hiking through a national park on vacation, and was bitten on the leg when she tried to take a selfie with the large dangerous reptile. This woman put her safety on line in order to get Facebook likes for her dangerous selfie, and predictably, she paid the price. This has become a problem in America’s National Parks as well, for example a woman was attacked while trying to take a selfie with a bison in Yellowstone, which caused the park to post signs advising no selfies with the wildlife. If you are dumb enough to take a selfie with a dangerous animal, you deserve to get bitten, like this guy getting bit while trying to take a selfie with a python.
