Such was the case for a 23-year old man who fed himself to Masha and Misha at the Belgrade Zoo. His untouched clothes suggested that he approached the bears bare-naked by choice. The bears, fearing that his intentions were as dishonorable as they were ill-informed, meted out a quick justice.
The man's mauled corpse was found inside the bear habitat along with plenty of beer cans. Masha and Misha "reacted angrily" when keepers tried to recover the man's corpse, but were eventually persuaded to give up their prize.
The Zoo director said, "Only an idiot would jump into the bear cage."
"Man Mistakes Bear for Beer"
"A Real Bearwurst"
What readers think:
"Guess the guy misunderstood when his friend said, 'Hey man, go git us a couple of dem beers.'" "I cannot bear this story." "Today's the day the teddy bears have their piiiiic-nic." "How many beers were bartered for the body?"
