Shocking moment polar bear attacks woman who climbed into zoo enclosure



This is the terrifying moment a woman was attacked by a polar bear after jumping into its zoo enclosure.

The 32-year-old leapt over bars at Berlin Zoo during the bears' feeding time yesterday.

Despite six zookeepers' efforts to distract the four predators kept in the enclosure, the woman was bitten several times on her arms and legs.
The brave keepers eventually managed to push the bear away and pull the woman to safety.

She was bitten by one of the four older polar bears in the enclosure and not by the famous Knut, who took Germany by storm as a cub after he was hand-raised by a keeper.

It is not known why the woman pulled the dangerous stunt but she initially appeared to be elated as she swam towards a bear in the enclosure.
It is not easy to access the enclosure, which is surrounded by a fence, a line of prickly hedges and a wall.

Heiner Kloes, a zoo spokesman, said keepers pushed the huge bear away before pulling the woman out.

She was taken to a hospital for treatment where she is now recovering after undergoing surgery to heal her wounds.

Similar thing happened to a guy who climbed into a panda enclosure in a Chinese zoo a while ago, and I think he was mangled really badly.

As much as I feel bad and I would rather see a cute polar bear picture, you can only blame the woman. If she fell in there or something, it'd be one thing but she voluntarily got into the area ...

Just to make everyone feel better:

Stupid woman, how would she like it if some polar bears invaded her house?

Darwin swings and misses.

Why would someone jump into any zoo enclosure?

Re: Shocking moment polar bear attacks woman who climbed into zoo enclosure

It is impossible to feel bad for this women. She'd better be glad that she was just bitten and not devoured. It was feeding time too! What the heck was she thinking?!

I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, except in alphabetical order like it should be.
