    Default Pet black bear kills owner

    Pet black bear kills owner | bear, say, walz - Local News -

    ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in northeastern Pennsylvania say a woman was killed by her pet black bear as she cleaned its cage.
    State police say 37-year-old Kelly Ann Walz was mauled to death Sunday evening by the 350-pound bear.
    A state Game Commission spokesman says Walz kept the bear inside a steel and concrete cage near her house about 20 miles northeast of Allentown.
    Officials say Walz threw a shovelful of dog food to one side of the cage to distract the bear while she cleaned the other side. At some point the bear turned on her and attacked.
    The bear was shot and killed. No information was available about who shot the bear.
    Game officials say Walz also owned a Bengal tiger and an African lion. They say she had licenses to own the animals.

    Bears are not pets. Lions are not pets. Tigers are not pets. Any questions? I suppose people who have these exotic and amazing animals as pets think that this kind of thing is not going to happen to them, because their wild animal is an exception to that rule (and I'm looking at that idiot who kept the chimp who ripped off her friend's face). Your wild animal, although you may or may not possess a license to have it, is not domesticated and it's probably not your pal. You likely look and smell like brunch, and you may very well be in the future.

    That said, my condolences to this woman's family.

    Poor bear being kept in a cage. Sad they had to shoot him.

    It's cruel to animals to keep them that way and I think it makes them aggressive. I don't think they should be killed, just relocated to some sanctuary or something. I think people like to feel unique and special by having these 'dangerous' exotic animals as pets and it seldom works out well.

    Anyone remember that monkey that freaked out and mauled its owner's friend down in Florida earlier this year?

    Just another sad case. People should not have these wild animals as pets.
