Don't Feed The Animals


Don’t Feed The Animals

“If we don’t see each other, again, it’s been nice knowing you,” Cam shouted, as they ran for their lives.

“Ditto!” Jamie yelled back, hanging on to her hand for dear life, as they raced, as fast as they could.

A summer internship at the Nature Reserve fostered a wild romance.


Well, like a lot of summer romances, it looks like this is going to end quickly.

No doubt, summer romances can be exhilarating; but, honestly, this seems a bit much.

A tad distracted, no doubt, they didn't notice that the lion pride was in their field.

Nota Bene:

Never run from a predator, it will only attract their attention.

Just calmly say, “Hello.” And, back away slowly.

I’ve  met some Big Cats in the wild. It’s not easy to stay calm;

But, seriously, think about it, there’s no way to outrun them.


Everyone deserves a place to be wild and breathe free.

Take Care of Each Other.
