The Darwin Awards Thread

Maybe it's not such a good idea to scale a protective barrier, and try to obtain a cell phone selfie with a 200 pound wild cat...

"(CNN)A jaguar attacked a woman at a zoo in Arizona, leaving her with injuries that required medical attention, the fire department said.

The attack happened Saturday evening at the Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield Park, said Shawn Gilleland of the Rural Metro Fire Department.
The guest crossed over the barrier to get a photo and was attacked by a female jaguar, the zoo tweeted, citing witness accounts.
"The visitor sustained non-life threatening injuries to their arm from one of our female jaguars. At the request of the family, paramedics were called. At no time was the animal out of its enclosure ... please understand why barriers are put in place. Sending prayers to the family tonight," the zoo tweeted."

This isn't even the first time I've heard of some twit getting herself mauled while trying to take a selfie with a wild cat at a zoo.  I think the last time I heard of it, it was a tiger and I think she might have been killed.

"OMG this will look so awesome on my Insta!"  -an epitaph for idiots.
