Jumping Into Trouble
Polar bears are not the friendliest animals, especially if you intrude their territory, but one woman in a German zoo apparently wanted to find that out for herself. She jumped, yes jumped! Into their enclosure and began to swim towards them, apparently excited. Despite the warnings of onlookers she kept getting closer and closer to the bears until she was at an eye shot away. However, the bears didn’t find that amusing and expressed their displeasure by biting her viciously on the arms and legs. Obviously not very friendly! Luckily for her, the keepers managed to distract the animals before she was mauled to death and she managed to escape by a whisker and was pulled out of the water.
