Lightbulb Let's Get Drunk and Go Feed the Bears!

Bear Bites Woman's Fingers Off at Wisconsin Zoo

MANITOWOC, Wis. (March 6) -- 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.

I can't stomach drunks - particularly those who imbibe with children in their presence.

What did the moron think the bear was going to do when she put her fingers in its cage - lick 'em?

Me thinks this has more to do with stupidity than alcohol.

Personally, I could drink from sun up until sun down and still would know not to put any part of my body near a bear's cage.

What a dumbass.

Of course they won't be.

Hopefully, they might consider otherwise for her.

That is what I thought was amazing. They said "LIKELY won't be euthanized."

They put these bears in captivity, put up signs to warn people NOT to feed the bears because it's dangerous....

and now they act as though there is actually a chance they might euthanize the bears as though it was their fault for doing what comes naturally?...

I bet she was feeding them honey with her bare hands.

Exactly, I don't care how drunk you get you still have some common sense about you.

The only one that should be euthanized is the lady---She's so stupid that I'm pretty sure that we don't want that gene pool to be passed on...

There is a book (can't remember the title of it) that is about stupid ways in which people died at Yellowstone National Park. Apparently there was this one genius who decided that it would be really cool to hold his three year old son on the back of a Bison while his wife took a photo.

Now, if you have never seen a Bison up close, just let me remind you that they are 2500+ lbs of MEAN! Sure, they look all fluffy and cuddly. But they ARE NOT!

So this Bison with the 3 yr old passenger does what Bisons do----he bucks, the child goes flying, and then he (the Bison) slams his granite-hard skull and horns into the chest of the dumbas....um....dad.

Dad apparently smashed against a tree twenty feet off of the ground (by all estimates he was dead long before his carcass hit the tree).

The only good thing in the story was that the child was not injured in any way.

When will people learn that Bears, Bison, Orcas, etc are not to be effed with?
