When we were growing up, most of us could agree on a list of animals that seemed both intensely cool and incredibly dangerous.
Although some regions put you in touch with a lot more spiders, snakes, and scorpions than others, lions, tigers, sharks, bears, and giant squids were all animals we had a healthy respect for.
For that reason, it's hard to imagine ourselves feeling anything but petrified if we were to meet them in the wild. However, life isn't always that simple.
As one video shows, it's not hard to tell when even an unfamiliar animal is in bad shape. And when wee see that, any fear we have can soon melt away to be replaced by compassion.
Be warned, the video contains some graphic footage towards the end.
