Lady breaks into polar bear exhibit

Stupid hurts!

Quote:
Zookeepers in Berlin have been praised for saving the life of a woman mauled by a polar bear after she jumped into its enclosure.

The 32-year-old, named in local press reports as Mandy K, suffered serious bite injuries to her arms and legs after the animal grabbed hold of her, but keepers who rushed to the scene managed to push it away before it could inflict a bit that might have broken her spine.

Knut, the polar bear cub who became world famous after it was abandoned by its mother in 2006, was in the enclosure along with two further bears when the woman jumped in, but was not involved in the attack, a zoo spokeswoman said.

Hundreds of visitors watched in horror as the woman, who is thought to be mentally disturbed, scaled a fence, a wall and a line of hedges to get into the enclosure as the animals were being fed, at around 10.30am on Friday.

She dropped into the moat and swam towards the bear, which clambered down rocks into the water and grabbed hold of her. It raked her with its claws and bit her several times before keepers could push it away. She was initially treated for bite wounds at the scene before being taken to hospital.

Heiner Klös, the zoo biologist, said: “Our alarm system worked, otherwise it would have been a bad outcome for the bear as well.”
And I don't see how it could be called an attack, the lady fed herself to them.

You guys must not understand mental illness.

It really means she doesn't comprehend things correctly, and doesn't realize or rationalize what she was getting herself into.

Of course she doesn't comprehend things correctly, as evidenced by the action.

And back in the day, natural selection would take care of things like that. Its unfortunate, and a mean thing to say, but life is hard bub.

This wasn't a kid, she was 32. I know there is valid points to both sides, I just think the removal of natural selection has contributed GREATLY to the worlds problems. The weak are not supposed to survive, or procreate. Today, with all of the great advances in humanity and technology, just about EVERYONE survive's and procreate's. Am I the only one who thnks this is a problem?

Edit-In NO WAY am I saying to anyone on this board if you have family or friends who are disabled they should die. I had a cousin who just recently passed who was mentally and physically disabled. I loved her to death. I just have hard questions about today's world.

I wouldn't call it a 'problem', but yes, it does change the dynamic of nature from what it once was.

ok, problem is a harsh word. I can't think of how we are going to evolve in a way that is benificial to the world. All I can forsee is the movie Idiocracy coming true.

There's a silver lining that most people don't see... It causes one to pause, and re-look at what/how we are doing things today to better teach and understand another human being. That can have some very positive benefits to it in the grand scheme of things.

Oh I agree with you. But will re-thinking and changing what we can, (provided that change, necessary change, which is embroiled in controversy and political agenda's), be enough before we force our extinction?? I am talking in broad terms, and 1000's of years, but I still think we are heading to that inevitable path.

I'm not sure what you mean/imply with 'before we force our extinction'...

If it's what I think you mean, we are already well down that road with the introduction of antibiotics.
