Wild animals are often cute. But even the most adorable creatures can sometimes snap and bite your face off. Sharks and grizzly bears certainly have the power to rip people limb-from-limb. But animals such as chimpanzees or even pet dogs can also cause a lot of bodily harm. See how these people survived some much-too-close encounters.
