Bashing a alligator on the snout with a rolled up newspaper will often make it back off,
just don't try the same thing with a crocodile, so make sure you know the difference
then you can decide if you need to make a trip to the gun shop or newsagents.
A rare Amur tiger, also known as Siberian Tiger, has died in a fight with two other tigers at Longleat Safari and Adventure Park.
Thirteen-year-old female Shouri, who died on Monday, had lived at the park since 2006.
Longleat said: "During the process of moving the tigers between the various outdoor paddocks, a door connecting two areas was opened which meant Shouri was able to gain access to the same outdoor area as Red and Yana.
"The dedicated team of keepers who care for our big cats are, understandably, extremely distraught by the events and we are doing everything we can to help and support them."
Red and Yana arrived at Longleat last year as a breeding pair.
According to WWF, Amur tigers, also known as the Siberian tiger, were once found throughout the Russian Far East, northern China, and the Korean peninsula.
By the 1940s, hunting had driven them to the brink of extinction. The population is now endangered, with around 540 believed to be remaining.
Now there are calls for a change in the law, but i cannot see how either of the tiger deaths would have been avoided with that, one seems to have been wild animals being just that, and the other was a mistake that could happen no matter how many laws there are. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47230677
Not really on topic but there was a falconry (and owlry) display at arundel castle on Saturday, the birds where beautiful and the flight displays astonishing. Now I want a barn owl to display with publicly.
