Over the course of these six hours, through re-enactments and interviews, we see and hear such frightful stories from survivors of animal attacks.

Ever wonder what it’s like to be on the wrong side of a ravenous bear, a 200-pound chimpanzee, a pissed off bull, or assorted zoo dwellers such as gorillas and tigers? Over the course of these six hours, through re-enactments and interviews, we see and hear such frightful stories from survivors of animal attacks.
