On Tuesday evening, Piers Morgan invited Jack Hanna to the program to discuss the recent influx of reports regarding animal attacks in the U.S., including a Florida teenager who lost part of his arm in an alligator attack Monday.
Hanna's advice when encountering a wild animal is counter intuitive but very important: "Do not run. People - young people have to understand this," warned Hanna.
"They [wild animals] relate man to food," explained Hanna. "If people feed the gators, then the gator relates that person to food. If you leave your picnics in Montana or Idaho, wherever you're hiking in Arizona, or whatever state has black bears or grizzlies, you leave a food there at the picnic place, they're going to come back."
Hanna also provided insight as to why these alligator and crocodile attacks are more prevalent right now during breeding season:
"Alligators and crocodiles are some of the most aggressive creatures on the planet—they’ll take down a boat if you come up to their nest.”
Due to careful regulations in Florida Hanna said it’s very unlikely that you will be attacked by these dangerous reptiles. Watch the clips and listen to the interview as Hanna gives advice and shares his knowledge of animal attacks.
