Woman gets mauled by Polar Bear

Ok, so technically this isn’t a celebrity gossip piece, but a reader has begged us at The Squealer to post this Hi-larious story.

A woman was attacked by a polar bear at Berlin Zoo on Friday, after jumping into it’s enclosure during feeding time.

Berlin Police Officer, Goerg Gebhard, said one adult bear bit the woman several times on her arms and legs after she plunged into the moat.

Zoo workers tossed rescue rings toward the woman to hoist her out and distract polar bears swimming nearby.

At one point the the 32-year-old fell back into the water and was grabbed by a bear before she was eventually hoisted to safety.

It is not known why the woman pulled the dangerous stunt but onlookers said she initially appeared to be elated as she swam towards a bear in the enclosure.

She was taken to a hospital for treatment where she is now recovering after undergoing surgery to heal her wounds. 

Maybe she was looking for a bear hug?
