    Default Woman bitten by bear at Wis. zoo, fingers severed

    CNN.com - Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News

    MANITOWOC, Wisconsin. - Police say a bear bit off a woman's fingers at a Wisconsin zoo after she ignored barriers and warning signs to try to feed the animal.The Lincoln Park Zoo in Manitowoc closed after the incident Friday morning. Police say the 47-year-old woman lost a thumb and a forefinger, and two other fingers were partially severed.
    The woman's boyfriend was bitten as he tried to pry the bear's mouth off her hand, but he didn't lose any fingers. Her 3-year-old granddaughter wasn't injured.


    A mayor's office statement says alcohol played a factor.
    It's unclear which of two Asiatic black bears bit the women when she put her hand through their enclosure's fence. Police tell the Herald Times Reporter the bears likely won't be euthanized.
    Manitowoc is about 80 miles north of Milwaukee.

    The bears SHOULDN'T be euthanized. What kind of idiot puts their hands in a bear's cage? I would have bitten her too.

    No matter how many people get mauled, there's always another idiot who thinks it won't happen to them.

    Dear jeezus, please let me never get so drunk that I think it's a good idea to play with a bear.

    *sigh* I'd like to know what percentage of bites are because people effin' shoved their own extremities into the animal's mouth. It's gotta be way up there.

    Euthanize the stupid woman!

    I hate it when animals have to pay due to human stupidity.

    I can't believe they would even THINK about euthanizing the bears because of this stupid idiot's actions.
