A Jurassic Park Moment

A Jurassic Park Moment

     A loud report broke over the constant din of the engine and our open-sided, open-topped vehicle came to an abrupt halt.  The back right tire was flat and the sinister silence of the enigmatic woodland matched the deep solemness of the situation.  Somewhere nearby there were tigers.

     Our guides had received information that a tigress and three cubs had been spotted.  Madly we had rushed toward the distant locale in hopes of catching a glimpse of the feline quartet.  Just a we arrived at the anticipated site, the blowout occurred.

     As the tire exchange was hastily being made, we apprehensively watched the nearby brushy thicket for any sign of movement.  Imagination soon overpowered rationality causing striped pelages and shadowy forms to flourish and flow in the close cover.  It was a Jurassic Park moment.
