BBC Journalist Learns That Lesson About Never Working With Animals


It was a sheep shot when a ram rammed a BBC camera operator right in the groin.

Cecil, a Cameroon sheep, charged at the man as he was filming for the “Animal Park” series at Longleat Estate and Safari Park in southwest England.

“Cecil, don’t do that. I am so sorry,” the keeper responded, laughing.

The keeper had earlier warned, however, that Cecil and his three brothers were “getting a bit too confident” in their surroundings ― and she also received a ram to the leg.

The BBC shared footage of the painful incident to YouTube on Monday. It’s now going viral. Check out the clip here:
