Patience, Young Grasshoper

A college student was walking around on campus when he came across a large grasshopper on the sidewalk...
 
"I stop a moment and watch him. He just looks at me. I couldn’t physically see his little tiny, microscopic eyes, but I could feel them... He waits until I’m close enough and flies straight into my face. Without thinking I scream, ‘What the [heck], grasshopper!?’ and flail around a bit. I can only assume it made a conscious decision to attack me."

The chimp randomly attacked the woman, biting and tearing at her flesh and nearly killing her. The woman lived, but she had to undergo numerous surgeries to reconstruct and mend the wounds caused by the animal.
