Ron Bunce, the man who stared into the jaws of death, has told of his ordeal. It's a miracle I'm alive,??? he said after leaving hospital. Twenty-year-old Ron was working at Longleat Safari Park when a Bengali tiger pounced on him. He said "I felt its gigantic teeth round my neck and paw under my body. It dragged me from the compound into bushes. Then it sank its teeth into the top of my left leg. I was trying to fight back, punching and kicking it with my other leg. All the time I was screaming. I know it sounds strange but I never thought it would kill me. I have always believed in miracles and they do happen - that's why I'm still alive." Ron Bunce - apart from the physical scars he has to live with the memory of the attack by a tiger. July 1978 P013719"
