Well, this may not be quite the appropriate subject, but when I read this type of story, it's hard not to think "Nature is fighting back"
Same as the rhino poacher being killed by an elephant and eaten by a lion, it's hard not to root for the animals.

**************************************************************

A large, flightless bird native to Australia and New Guinea attacked and killed its owner when the man fell on his farm in Florida, authorities said Saturday.

The Alachua County Fire Rescue Department told the Gainesville Sun that a cassowary killed the man Friday on the property near Gainesville, likely using its long claws. The victim was apparently breeding the birds, state wildlife officials said.

"My understanding is that the gentleman was in the vicinity of the bird and at some point fell. When he fell, he was attacked," Deputy Chief Jeff Taylor told the newspaper. He said first responders got a call at 10 a.m. Friday and rushed the man to a hospital for trauma care but he died.

The county sheriff's office identified the victim as Marvin Hajos, 75, and said a death investigation has been opened.

I've heard of these birds before, Steve Irwin who was afraid of nothing would not tackle these birds as he said they were so vicious.

I just heard that on the radio, and blurted "But where will Quasimodo live?" In all seriousness though, what a shame :(

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. The worst part about loving a dog is that they never live long enough.
