READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
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.

"Ever performed on Karaoke, Piese? I must have done it seven or eight hundred times, and I will do it again on friday.
It's adictive, when you're told 'That was beautiful.'."
I like this interview.
The attacks are not uncommon. With all the various forms of media now, they jump on a story and try to sensationalize it.
Reminds me of yellow journalism.
I loved this because animals are a passion of mine, but Everytime jack would talk he was cut off by Piers. He would be in mid sentence and just cut off. I felt bad for him and I wanted to hear many of the facts.
I do like piers and think he is a good host. I just think he cut jack Hanna off too much when he was trying to get something out.
