Tooth and Claw: True Stories of Animal Attacks
Cassowary Attack - Kicking and Screaming

Cassowary Attack - Kicking and Screaming

June 11, 2021

This is one of the more unique episodes we've done so far, on an animal that many people haven't even ever heard of. Or maybe that's just Mike. Wes shares a bunch of different cassowary attack stories, Jeff poses a really good and related (?) question, and the crew learns all kinds of cool things about cassowaries as well as introduces a few new wrinkles to the regular episode formula.

Thanks for listening! We hope you enjoy the episode.

Black Bear Attack: Bear vs. Bacon

Black Bear Attack: Bear vs. Bacon

May 28, 2021

Today we go over the story of Cynthia Dusel-Bacon, who spent her summers  working in the wilds of Alaska taking geological samples. But on one  fateful day in 1977, she was the one that was sampled; by a relatively  small but still insanely powerful black Bear that had decided it wanted  to make a meal of her. If you weren’t aware, Wes loves bears, so he  spends most of the episode explaining why the attack happened and how  black Bear attacks are so rare considering how many of them there are.  Also Jeff tries (and fails) to pronounce some of your names and we  finally get Mike to admit which cartoon bears he loves the most.
