Everyone loves animals, but most are aware that if you don’t treat them with the caution and respect they deserve, they can be very dangerous indeed. However, some are not so clued up on this fact or either choose to ignore it at their peril. Here we have several photographs taken just before disaster struck to illustrate just how cautious you should be at times.

As far as most animals are concerned, ducks are probably pretty low down on the list of things that can cause you any serious harm, but that doesn’t stop them being painful little blighters when they want to be. For the most part, a selfie with a duck should be safe but do remember they are wild animals constantly on the lookout for food, so if they think you have some, they will go for it.
The problem with fingers is that they can look a little like worms to colorblind ducks that don’t have digits of their own. This photo is more hilarious than tragic, but it still shows how all animals should be treated with care.
