In a new three-part series airing tonight, Dave Salmoni and Animal Planet examine the three deadliest spots in the world where animals and people collide in mortal combat.
In other words -- they tell you the three places on earth where you're most likely to be eaten alive.
"World's Deadliest Towns" features real-life scenarios in which people live in constant fear for their lives. Salmoni goes to Indian and African villages where rogue elephants, killer hippos, and man-eating tigers are a constant threat to the people who live among them.
The first episode, airing at 8pm, is about killer elephants in India. Due to human encroachment, the elephants have abandoned their customary gentle behavior and trample, gore, and tear people apart. The giant herbivores have also been known to actually eat the people they attack.
At 9pm we get killer hippos from Zambia's Zambezi River. In a village there, a hippo killed an entire family of nine people and villagers now blame voodoo. Salmoni is present for a ritualistic hippo exorcism.
At 10pm, we're back to India and its killer tigers. In India's Sunderbans, Royal Bengal tigers kill people on a daily basis and are now teaching their cubs how to hunt man.
Salmoni hopes to learn more about why these animals are killing and consuming people at increasing rates.
All three episodes air back-to-back tonight on Animal Planet, beginning at 8pm.
