Man Bites Dog Story (Well, sort of...)

All tragedies aside, am I the only one who's jaded enough to wonder why authorities didn't seem to consider the possibility that the victim may well, in fact, have been stupid? I certainly hope that the bears are held blameless in this incident. After all, they are, quite obviously, not stupid; they did what any self respecting predator would do: took excellent advantage of a good opportunity...


Bears Eat Man at Beer Festival

BELGRADE, Serbia (Reuters) -- A 23-year old Serb was found dead and half-eaten in the bear cage of Belgrade Zoo at the weekend during the annual beer festival.

The man was found naked, with his clothes lying intact inside the cage. Two adult bears, Masha and Misha, had dragged the body to their feeding corner and reacted angrily when keepers tried to recover it.

"There's a good chance he was drunk or drugged. Only an idiot would jump into the bear cage," zoo director Vuk Bojovic told Reuters.

Local media reported that police found several mobile phones inside the cage, as well as bricks, stones and beer cans.
