Idiot jumps into polar bear habitat

Published:

A polar bear attacked a woman at Berlin Zoo Friday afternoon after she climbed a fence and jumped into its habitat during feeding time, police said Saturday.

One adult polar bit her several times after she plunged into the moat, police said.

Zoo workers tossed rescue rings toward the woman to hoist her out and distract polar bears swimming nearby, said Goerg Gebhard, a Berlin police officer.

Kudos to the zoo keepers who rescued her.  I'm also relieved to hear no bears were harmed. 

Maybe the woman is mentally ill...or maybe she just wanted her 15 minutes of fame.

I read about the woman as well, she couldn't have been in her right mind to jump into the polar bears habitat.. A very foolish woman indeed she was..
