Taking a holiday is about relaxing and leaving your worries at home.

But for a handful of unfortunate travellers, a day trip to the zoo, the beach or a hike has brought them extra stress.

People have been sharing the ‘Pictures of signs found all over the world that are slightly terrifying’ on Reddit.

Signs warning of a number of dangers have been given OTT descriptions or illustrations in order to catch the eye.

One particularly worrying sign was plastered onto shattered glass surrounding an animal enclosure at a zoo.

Another, which was placed on windows at a hotel in Dover, warned guests against opening because of a pigeon that tried to get into the rooms.

These are some of the best examples of signs you don’t want to see while on holidays.
