Violet D’Mello recently celebrated her 60th birthday by becoming a chew toy for two adult cheetahs.
Anyone who owns a cat should know that they are bi-polar dicks. It hurts when an angry house cat buries its claws in you, so imagine a 150-pound cheetah going bi-polar on your ass.
That’s what happened to Violet. One minute she was posing for photos with the beautiful cats, and the next she was on the ground with her neck in the jaws of a Hell Beast.
Luckily, her husband was there to
save her take photos of the mauling.
While his wife writhed on the ground, screaming as the two cheetahs bit her on her legs, stomach, head, and neck, he was clueless that she was in peril. In one photo, Violet seems to be looking over her shoulder at her husband with that “why the fuck aren’t you helping me” look in her eyes.
The mauling lasted a few terrifying minutes. While her husband continued taking photos (I love this guy!), a trainer helped chase the animals away with a stick.
An 8-year-old girl was also mauled and suffered minor injuries, but there are no pictures of her being attacked, so she only gets an honorable mention in this article.
Violet suffered cuts and punctures all over her body and took a cheetah claw to the eye, almost causing her to lose it. Once the animals were a safe distance away from her, her husband approached and lifted her off the ground like Superman coming to the rescue.
Trainers at the park believe that a running child in the enclosure may have caused the cheetahs to get agitated. Great parenting starts with letting your children run around inside a wild cat enclosure.
The trainers also suspect that another nearby cat in heat could have caused the two male cheetahs to become aggressive. So there you have it: the cheetahs either wanted to play rough with a running child, or fuck it — and it all led to Violet D’Mello getting mauled and her husband taking great photos of it.
Despite this attack, thousands of people will continue to ignore common sense and place themselves in harm’s way because they’ve just gotta touch the skin on a rhino’s balls, or smell a lion’s breath.
If you’ve ever stood by while your spouse was helplessly mauled by wild animals, please share your story below and don’t forget to post the photos!
