Polarized? Lets give this guy a hand.

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Row v. Wade, Jul 23, 2004.

  1. Tallinn - A 31-year-old man who had just woken up from a drunken stupor after falling asleep overnight in a zoo in Estonia tried to offer a polar bear a biscuit - and had his hand bitten off.

    His screams drew security personnel, who promptly called an ambulance which took the man to hospital in the capital, Tallinn, the Baltic News Service reported.

    The unidentified man had passed out after consuming large amounts of alcohol with friends. He woke up in the early hours of Thursday, found the biscuit in his pocket offered it to the bear.

    Tallinn Zoo manager Mati Kaal, who has worked more than 30 years at the zoo, told BNS that it was the 11th time he had heard of such accidents, although "this is the first hand. In other cases it's been the whole arm". - Sapa-dpa

    Zoo's must be REALLY cool in Estonia if people are partying that hard in them ;)
     

  3. Imagine all the parents that would want to go on that field trip. A day off of work and you can get hammered. Who cares that you have 7 little crying brats following you around. :D
     
  4. Guess the guy could not read,there are always signs saying not to HAND feed the bears :confused: :eek: :eek:
     
  5. He still hasn't answered the question "why he did it". I guess he's stumped :D
