Surprisingly, there seem to be a lot of serious injuries by this very method - all in the cause of perfect p&s or mobile phone shots, of course :->
I stood for several minutes at a zoo waiting for the silverback gorilla to turn round and grab the arm of the idiot that was prodding him through the bars, I thought that would make a killer photograph!
I think I have the print of the guy prodding the gorilla somewhere which I took just in case the gorilla needed defence evidence!
