Tourist in Thailand Allegedly Bitten by Crocodile While Taking Selfie with it

Thailand

A French tourist in Thailand visiting Khao Yai National Park was apparently attacked and bitten by the crocodile she was trying to take a selfie with.

A 41-year-old French woman was having a tour of the famous Thai Park when she stopped for a closer look at a big reptile… that reptile being a very large crocodile, and that crocodile was in no mood to have its picture taken.

Other park visitors reportedly had seen the woman, who, along with her husband, knelt near the beast and attempted to take a selfie next to it.

The croc, on the other hand, had a different idea and bit the woman, causing a severe injury to her thigh. Not long after, the woman can be seen getting first aid from park officials in camouflage.

The park is as well known for its beauty and friendly people, as well as for the warnings telling visitors to stay along the paths.

It’s not known whether the woman and her husband had broken any laws in the process, but she has been taken to the hospital for further treatment.
