The Animal Selfie Phenonomon
Emerging as a growing threat to wildlife in recent years is the obsession people have with the selfie. The increasingly popular selfie with wild animals creates all kinds of risks to both animals and people who will stop at nothing to get the perfect selfie so they can impress their 'friends'. So shallow to not care anything at all about the welfare of the animal and to put it at risk just for the instant gratification of getting as many likes as possible. Recent news of kangaroos attacking tourists in NSW show the ugly side of feeding wildlife in an attempt to get them closer for a photo. Kangaroos can be dangerous animals that can inflict serious wounds if they are aggravated which has been the case when food has been withdrawn or not given after people have been feeding them. How stupid can these people be I wonder ? Some serious fines need to be handed out to people who ignore signs not to feed wildlife.
