Bears Snack on Man at Beer Festival

From CNN:

BELGRADE, Serbia (Reuters) — A 23-year old Serb was found dead and half-eaten in the bear cage of Belgrade Zoo at the weekend during the annual beer festival.

The man was found naked, with his clothes lying intact inside the cage. Two adult bears, Masha and Misha, had dragged the body to their feeding corner and reacted angrily when keepers tried to recover it.

In Serbia, the zookeepers must be no-nonsense types that cut to the chase:

“There’s a good chance he was drunk or drugged. Only an idiot would jump into the bear cage,” zoo director Vuk Bojovic told Reuters.

  1. I posted this on my blog too – it was too easy not to post. But what group of geniuses think this is a good plan? “Hey, you know where the best place to have a beer festival would be? The Zoo! Yeah, the Zoo! Maybe some idiot will get all the monkeys drunk, and some moron will crawl into the lions cage! Sweet!”

    This is Natural Selection occurring in real time.

  2. It’s rather common, actually. (Try a Google search for “brew at the zoo”.) Even the National Zoo in Washington, DC got in on the act a couple years ago.
