Wild is wild
I always look forward to reading the local newspapers because they deal almost strictly with Santarém people and events. The February 29, 2008 edition of O Impacto really caught my attention because of two articles about wild animals- a black-caiman that ate a fisherman and a large anaconda snake found right here in the city. The front page features photographs of both, plus another of three children whose bodies were carbonized in a house that caught on fire. I won't bother my readers with the details of the last article, but the first two are demonstrative of the fact that there's still some wildness left in the wild.
