    Default Woman survives polar bear mauling at Berlin Zoo

    Woman survives polar bear mauling at Berlin Zoo - Telegraph



    The keepers' bravery was praised after they dragged the 32-year-old out of a moat for the animals. They had to shove the animal out of the way after one of four polar bears dived into the water and attacked her, inflicting serious bites to her legs and arms.
    Knut, the zoo's baby bear that became an international celebrity in 2007 after it was hand-reared by a keeper, was in the enclosure at the time. Germany went polar bear crazy after the birth of the cute animal.


    Police did not say why the woman jumped into the enclosure. She had to climb over a fence, a line of prickly hedges and a wall to get in.
    She suffered serious injuries after being bitten on her arms and legs.
    Last December a man who afterwards said he was "lonely" survived jumping into the same zoo enclosure when keepers diverted the bears with chunks of beef.
    "The woman has proved herself to be careless by jumping into the enclosure," a police spokesman said afterwards. "Logic tells us that polar bears will do this type of thing in this situation."

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess idiocy as a contributing factor.

    Um, yeah why DID She jump into the enclosure? She's a little old for a dare, and horrible way to commit suicide.

    "The woman has proved herself to be careless by jumping into the enclosure,"
    Careless? That is a bit of an understatement, I'd say.

    I'm glad no one else was injured saving this woman from her own breathtaking stupidity. Maybe she thought it'd be fun to splash around with Knut.

    Please tell me they won't destroy the bear.
    ETA: I once knew a guy who was mauled at the Granby Zoo in Quebec. He lost an arm and he called himself Lefty. Great guy.

    The video showed her ecstatic face when she first jumped into the water. She is clearly insane

    Careless? How about fucking insane? Who the hell jumps into an enclosure with polar bears? They're one of the largest, most aggressive animals on earth. One hell of a way to attract attention.

    I hope this doesn't catch on as an insanity cure.
