At least she died doing what she loved: gasping for air as giant enraged beasts stamped the life out of her.

Clapp had visited her in Hong Kong, where she was part of a project that tracked bamboo pit vipers, which can be deadly. He said she had snakes in bags stashed all over the jungle shack she shared with other researchers.
"It made me so nervous," he said. "But she talked about them like they were little puffballs."


Yeah...she was an idiot...you never get a big head around elephants.

This is truly an amazing story...
A young man was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from college.
While he was walking through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air.
The elephant seemed distressed so the man approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot. There was a large thorn deeply embedded in the bottom of the foot.
As carefully and as gently as he could, he worked the thorn out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man and with a rather stern look on its face, stared at him. For a good ten minutes the man stood frozen - thinking of nothing else but being trampled.
Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned and walked away.
The man never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Twenty years later the man was walking through the zoo with his teenage son.
As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to where they were standing at the rail. The large bull elephant stared at him and lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times, all the while staring at the man. The man couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant.
After a while it trumpeted loudly; then it continued to stare at him.
The man summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder.
Suddenly the elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of the man's legs and swung him wildly back and forth along the railing, killing him.
Probably wasn't the same elephant...

FTA: "During one spring break, she camped out by herself at the reservoir with little supplies, just to see if she could do it."

Few supplies, moran, FEW supplies. Where'd you learn to write, Clown College?

I usually don't get this stabby, but something about this sentence just annoyed me.

Well, animals are a lot like people, Mrs Simpson. Some of them act badly because they've had a hard life, or have been mistreated...but, like people, some of them are just jerks. Stop that, Mr Simpson.

Maybe they meant she had a tiny tent and a little spoon and a thimble for a cup.  That's quite a challenge

That one jumped out at me too. I was thinking, "Tiny tent, tiny bag, tiny stove, tiny pack..." Sure, it would be a challenge, but hardly indicative of one's wilderness skills.

No, no, they meant that the supplies were little. Tiny bottles of water, mini Oreos, etc. Obviously.

Fearlessly worked with wolves and deadly venomous jungle vipers, only to be killed by an arguably less dangerous animal?

I second your nomination.

Right before the tragic event.


"And I needed a Phd. to do this!"

Reminds me of a show I saw one Sunday afternoon on the local PBS station.  It was about elephants and I was sitting there doing something, and only half listening to the show.  Something made me look up and this good looking woman appeared to have just removed a condom from a elephant.  They didn't come out and say what was going on, but, it was something about artificial insemination.  I sat there thinking, "I wonder how many years of grad school did she need, to learn how to jerk-off an elephant?"

They're the ones with the cute white babies who are always dancing with pacifiers to keep their teeth from grinding.

Yeah, uhhhhh, no.  No they're not. Elephants are dangerous as hell, as are hippos.

She died doing what she loved.  Screaming in pain while being torn to pieces by a wild animal.

Poachers probably killed her, then their elephant overlords kicked her around for a while.  Happens.

I used to have a gif of a woman's breasts morphed into a couple of angry attack puppies bouncing up and down. I can't find it though.

That's the problem with those darn elephants, they're just so sneaky and they creep up on you and suddenly it's stomp, stomp, stomp.

Elephants are matriarchal, live in groups of related females with their calves and do not take shiat from anybody, let alone some "badass" homo sapiens who thinks she's Jane Goodall.
