not the first case either

"Remarkably, Louise has also previously been chased by an ostrich in the reserve."

Next time, a lion won't be so discriminating........one of them might wind up being dinner...

That Giraffe really hated that mountain bike.

Here's an interesting fact. The closest living relatives of the North American Pronghorn Antelope are Giraffes! It is the last surviving member of a family that numbered 12 species during the Pleistocene. All the others are extinct by the Pronghorn. When humans first entered North America there were 5 species of Antilocapridae. Strange but true!

Well I thought it was interesting.
