If only there had been a rhino nearby to distract attention from the bear.

I was chased by a rhino there many years ago. (Actually in Nepal, but just over the border on the same lowlands). We weren't doing anything silly, just hiking and it got startled by another group and rushed towards us. I never climbed a tree so fast again.

If there were a "like" facility on the board, I would give you many many likes for this. (Or probably only one, since most "like" implementations have some sort of mechanism to prevent duplicates. But the one like I gave you would stand for many in my mind.)
