    Know as the "Tiger man"
    A South African conservationist and filmmaker known for daring photography of wild animals is in intensive care after he was attacked by a tiger on his private game reserve.

    John Varty, 61, is on a ventilator recovering from surgery for his injuries, including several puncture wounds and two broken ribs....

    No one can trust wild animals,not matter how much time you spend with them.I'm glad he wanted to save them but a little common sense is needed

    what a cool job...but yeah, probably too close...i'm sure he's gotten very close lots of times - but has been lucky!...it would be one of the best careers to have - capturing wildlife by vid/photo....well i wish him well...and once he's better - i bet he'll get right back out there big_smile
