Not really. If you feed an animal with that kind of power, you're going to have to accept the risks involved.

Now, do I think it would completely suck to have that happen? OH YES!!

I don't even have to go to the link to know what you're talking about. Feel sorry for them? Absolutely not. This is not a petting zoo, this is the wild. You never know what's going to happen. Good luck trying to sue an eel.

The funny part is that he had to have his big toe sewn on for a replacement.

I've seen that video, and what did he expect would happen not only because of the fact that he was feeding the thing, but because he was teasing it. I mean really, that just takes a special kind of stupid.

agreed, you do not have to look at this samurai rock star to figure out how it is going to end. I sent this to my non-diver manager and thought the same way that we do

I wonder if his "thumb" twitches when you tickle his foot?:smiley36:

LOL, maybe he will get those big toe hairs as well.

What would happen if he "sucked his thumb"?

OK, I've got a sick sense of humor.

Now I wasn't able to view the video where I'm at, but if the bitee was being stupid, (and it sounds like he was) then he probably got what was coming.

I don't feel sorry for him at all. Besides feeding it, he was teasing it to try and get it to do stuff.

Makes it easy to bite your toe nails. I wonder how athlete's foot works in this situation.:smilie39::smilie39::smiley13:

It would naturally gravitate towards his foot. :smiley20:

****e....that was a huge eel

I can't believe he was feeding an Eel that crap. It was bad enough he was feedin an eel, but bread and Sausage???? Eels don't eat that and I would be shocked if it did not hurt the eel.

I wonder if that guy knows eels really can't see much at all,really only movement, and that they hunt by smell. I bet that guys thumb smelled alot like sausage. Eel should have bit his head off.

Hahahaha - I posted in another thread that my underwater fear was one of these jokers popping out and biting me when I was swimming by, and here this fool actively encourages it. Too perfect.

the guy really seemed cockey and foolish

Yep, he got what he deserved. Too bad his finger was all that got bit off, we really don't need this guy contributing to the gene pool. Of course, a toe sewn on down therre...

Not at all, sort of like playing with fire. When will people learn not to mess with the wild. Eels are amazing creatures, but not toys.

But at least he was still able to grab his beer, isn't that the most important thing :anim_whacko: (I could not find the shake head icon)

I couldnt have described it better myself. The guy was feeding the eel sausages that are the same size as his fingers. C'mon, that guy is a little slow-in my opinion.

Nope... Wonder if he learned his lesson or if he is still teasing the wildlife?

It should have bitten off his head instead

greyzen
08-29-2007, 10:55
all I'm saying is... it could have been worse.

There are other appendages that can look like sausages, and it wouldn't surprise me at all for those idiots to waggle those in front of the eel either.

What is it we were taught in the basic OW course....do not touch corals or Marine life.

Not at all. You just don't tease wild animals. He was just stupid. Hope he learned the lesson.

I had a good friend who was a park ranger. Her response to those who muck with animals and get hurt was "Hey, some of the baby turtles make it to the sea, some don't."

I got zero pity for someone that stupid.

dludwig
08-29-2007, 20:14
Am I missing something here or what? The guy is feeding the eel hot dogs, in a way taunting it & is surprised it bites him. :smiley19:
"mess w/ the bull & you could get the horn".

Terrible thing to happen to anyone but ...
