WEEDSPORT, N.Y. -- A woman lost part of her arm when she reached into the cage of two Chinese Himalayan bears.

Brooke Bessette, 22, was able to free herself after being grabbed by one of the bears Sunday, but suffered severe injuries to her lower arm, Cayuga County Sheriff Robert Outhouse said.

Her arm was amputated below the elbow. She was in good condition Monday at a Syracuse-area hospital.

The attack took place at a "private zoo," the Cayuga County sheriff's office said. Authorities were looking into possible trespassing charges.

Authorities did not say who owned the zoo.

The state Environmental Conservation Department also was investigating whether the owner of the bears holds the proper permits for the exotic animals, Outhouse said.

Well, what did she think was going to happen? THe bear was going to lick her hand and let her pet it?

It's a fvcking bear! When people see bears, the first thought that flashes through their mind is, "I bet they look funny when they hump." The second thoughts is, "That fvcker will bite my arm off!"

They should put the bear on the little unicycle as punishment. With a little hat. Playing the funny circus song.

She was successful, too.

Reminds me of the old Gallagher quip:

Another moron that thinks all animals are friendly and cuddly creatures like her stuffed Teddy Bears on her bed or cartoons she watched.

Necros generate 30% of the traffic now. If not for those, we could just make up an email list, and have the new content sent once a week. Could read it all before work while having coffee.

Stupid will be stupid. Amazing enough it is not the folks who have lower IQ whom you expect to be doing these things, but people who should know better doing this.

There is a good reason why those who live in bear country own high powered firearms and keep them in reach. Which is also why folks in Alaska carry magnum level handguns as well.

Bears will you you if given the chance.

Well that is why you always have another person with to use as bait. So if I miss I only have to run faster then then the other guy behind me and the not the bear. The same applies to mountain lions as well.
