No doubt. She should of jumped in the Penguin cage!
Slightly smaller and a little less curious!

P.S. Lets just nuke em all and forget it!

CNN had the picture posted on the front page of their website last night. I'm sure many other media outlets did also. So don't shoot the messenger. Besides there's no blood or anything in the picture and the woman is alive, so I don't see what the problem is. if you remove the polar bear from the picture you might think she just stubbed her toe or she's cheering because her favorite team just scored a touch down. I honestly don't see what the problem is. If the picture was gruesome I would understand, but it's not.

Darwinism is alive and well!

All I can do is scratch my head and laugh. I have no sympathy for stupid people like this woman. If she was in the wild, she would have been removed from the gene pool long ago.

IRM :shk:

Listen OP, why did you have to post the picture of the woman being attacked?

Of course she must have been mad. And you guys stating that the bear should have killed her; where is your humanity? I am not that easily pissed off but now I am and I have that f-ing picture in my head.

Thanks a lot

If that picture offended you then with all due respect maybe you should direct your feelings toward the CNN website... The OP is bringing forward a very valid and interesting story - the picture was part of that..

It was not gratuitous, gory or exceptionally distasteful - It did however show what happens when you jump into a polar bear enclosure and the bear is really rather restrained... By all rights that should be a picture of 70% of a person and a red faced bear (and not through embarrassment

Edit: I am offended by the hyphen you used in the 'f' word...

They should have let the bears eat her. That would learn her a valuable lesson.

They could have claimed ecology as an excuse for not "rescuing" this moron.

"Sorry folks, but here at the Berlin zoo we pride ourselves on creating as close to a natural habitat for our animals as possible with as little interference from our handlers as we can. Unfortunately this woman entered into that habitat and so we can observe the natural order of survival of a species.

Note that the polar bear is the only animal on the planet that will instinctively stalk and prey on humans."

It's like at the Denver zoo where they torture both the Mountain Lions and the Elk by keeping their habitats right across from each other, the elk I observed were herded as far away from the mountain lions as they possibly could, and the mountain lions were looking at their natural dinner very longingly.

Stupidity should not be saved in this species. This woman deserved to win a Darwin award, not rescued.

not only should they have left her to be eaten they should have had a class watching to show just how stupid it is to mess with bears saying "or this will happen to you"."bears are not cute and cuddly see?" look at what happens to stupid people- i believe she is a darwin award candidate

Considering that bear could have knocked her head off with one swat of his paw, she is lucky she was only bitten. I imagine the bear is not truly wild considering the length of time in captivity.

I happen to know someone whose son was killed by a bear. They are a creature not to trifle with.

yep no doubt it could have.
i am a big outdoorsman and i live in the highest bear population density in the world (poconos pa.) and we consider them garbage can bears because they seem cute and cuddly.
but if you ever have a 300+ lb bear climb a tree while you are sitting in it, or see how powerful they are when ripping open your "bear proof garbage bin" you will not want to mess with with one unless you have a death wish.
only animal that scares me more are pumas because they are sneaky and go immediately for the jugular
i'm not scared of bears just respect their power because i have seen what they can do. same as i have seen what a 20lb bobcat can do- go ahead mess with it and you will be sorry!
