Bear acts like bear, people shocked
Hmm, tasty. Got any deer?
Bears eat monkey, visitors shocked
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) -- Bears killed and devoured a monkey in front of horrified visitors at a Dutch zoo, officials and witnesses said.
Visitors reported that the grisly scene began as several bears chased the monkey, a macaque, onto a wooden structure at Beekse Bergen Safari Park.
They said a bear tried unsuccessfully to shake the monkey loose, ignoring attempts by keepers to distract it. The bear then climbed up and grabbed the monkey, mauling it to death and bringing it to its concrete den, where three bears ate it.
The park confirmed the killing. "The habitats here in the safari park are arranged in such a way that one animal almost never kills another, but they are and remain wild animals," it said in a statement.
Poor monkey. Poor planning.
Jesus, bears eat things, seals, campers, joggers.
Disney has done more harm to animals than a hundred poachers. Wild animals are dangerous.
People walk up to bisons in National Parks and pet them. Pet.
When the rangers run up to these people, completely freaked, the usual response is, well, aren't you here to protect me? Isn't this like a zoo?
The only sane response to that is "do you see any fucking fences around here."
Well, putting an omnivore in the same space as meat isn't bright.
