[edit] Information

Rogue Nature When an animal attacks a person, oftentimes the immediate consideration is euthanasia for the troublesome creature. But what causes an animal to go "rogue" and harm humans in the first place? Are these animals acting on instinct or are they simply vicious to the core? Canadian predator expert Dave Salmoni poses this question in "Rogue Nature," a six-part series that gets up close and personal with some of the world's most dangerous wild animals. Each episode features a species known for their frequent attack on humans. From bears and lions to hippos and elephants, Salmoni studies each animal's predatory profile and documents stories of survival from attack victims to try and gauge how dangerous these species inherently are. He then sets out into the wild to observe the animals in their natural habitat to observe if a violent reaction is automatic or just left to chance.

[edit] Bear

Do bears have it out for humans? Or are humans invading bears' habitats and leaving them no choice but to approach people for food? With over 100 fatal bear attacks in North America in the last 100 years, Salmoni is eager to find out.

[edit] Chimps

Humans share over 98 per cent of their DNA with chimpanzees and just like humans, chimps battle with weapons and have been known to hold grudges and seek revenge. Salmoni examines different chimp attacks to figure out what causes conflict with humankind's closest relatives.

[edit] Squid

Measuring over two metres long and weighing more than 65 kilograms, the monstrous Humboldt Squid has been dubbed the "Red Devil" by Mexican fisherman. Salmoni dons scuba gear to find the truth behind the tale of a sea creature pulling fishermen from their boats and killing them.

[edit] Hippos and Crocs

We all know crocs are not to be messed with, but few realize that the hippo is considered to be the number one killer of humans in Africa. Extremely aggressive and unpredictable, Salmoni studies hippos and crocs to find out if they are "rogue."

[edit] Elephants

In Zambia, elephants and humans have had trouble coexisting. Salmoni travels to South Africa to determine if it is possible for an entire elephant population to turn "rogue."

[edit] Lions

In Kruger National Park there is a startling trend developing: the lions living on the safari are targeting humans as a food source. Are these lions the embodiment of rogue nature?
