An Asiatic black bear at Lincoln Park Zoo bit off all or parts of four fingers from the hand of a 47-year-old woman Friday after she went past barriers and was trying to feed the animal, a Manitowoc police captain said.

Friday must have been the day for stupid people, first a woman with a jaguar and now a woman with a black bear!

Isn't that sad? The only reason the bears were "spared" euthanasia was because these two idiots very nicely agreed to take preventative rabies shots. Otherwise, of course, the bears would have been killed to have their brains tested for rabies.

I really hope we don't hear a great deal of criticism of either the zoo or these beautiful creatures. Because when people are stupid enough to go past barriers and stick their hands into a bear's face and try to feed him - they should not be surprised when they are bitten.

What a couple of idiots-and they had a child with them!!
Drinking and feeding the bears do not mix!
You think it would be common sense, wouldn't you?!

TAKING YOUR GRANDCHILD TO THE ZOO, WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE IS STUPID.NOW THE CHILD WILL LIVE WITH THIS NIGHTMARE FOR YEARS TO COME. GREAT GRAND PARENTING SKILLS IS DEFINITELY NOT A PLUS FOR THESE TWO. GUESS THEY'RE PAYING FOR THEIR MISTAKES . ONE DOESN'T DRINK & DRIVE, & ONE DOES NOT DRINK AND ATTEMPT TO FEED BEARS !!!!!!!

They were both drunk in the zoo whilst looking after a 3 year olf child - im suprised they didnt try to throw the child over the fence to the bear so she could have a cuddle from 'winnie the pooh'. Some people are complete morons. Im so glad to hear that the bear didnt get put down like they normally do
