Khun Somchai looks like an Oxford Don next to the hapless Isabelle Brennan, the English backpacker who was recently mauled by a tiger on a trip to Thailand.
Young Isabelle was one of many visitors who take part in the activities of washing, walking, petting and posing for photos with the tigers.
Yes, you read that right, petting a tiger!!!!! Jesus, Mary and Jospeh, that's just asking for trouble!!!! Did she not think it might be dangerous when she was asked to sign a waiver before entering? Despite being a student at the renowned UCL (University College London), she appears to have her brains wired to her backside.

This is another example of somebody underestimating the dangers of travelling in Thailand and not taking the right precautions. Admittedly, i's very easy to do when you're in a relaxed, holiday-orientated frame of mind and enjoying the delights of a tropical paradise.But, if you lower your guard in Thailand, your life can be over in the blink of an eye.
Isabelle herself admitted that she was very lucky and despite being scarred for life things could have been a lot worse!!!
The general rule of thumb when travelling is to ask yourself the question "Would I do this in England?" and if the answer is no, then why would you consider doing it in Thailand!!!!
Isabelle has learnt this the hard way and I'm sure it's a lesson she won't forget in a hurry!!!!!!
