Warning: Polar bears do NOT like playing patty-cake

April 12, 2009

The German woman below thought a polar bear at the Berlin Zoo needed a hug. So, she hopped a fence, a “prickly hedge”, and a wall to then jump into the polar bears’ enclosure. She proceeded to swim toward the polar bear when the polar bear did what polar bears do: mauled a weaker, slower potential threat/source of food. Can we already crown the 2009 Idiot of the Year? Huh? Can we?  The woman was pulled out by Berlin Zoo personnel and she remains hospitalized.  Check out the pics and video below.
