Guess what? He wasn't immune

Every once in a while, we hear about a story where a person willingly went up against a large, deadly wild animal only to find that the predator was far stronger than they were. While animal attacks in the USA are not too common these days, the same cannot be said for rural areas in Indonesia and the rest of southeast Asia. For some reason, that fact has lead to an ever increasing number of people claiming to have magical powers that can keep wild animals at bay. Spoiler alert: the powers don’t work.
