More proof that bears are godless monkey-killing machines
Agree or disagree with Stephen Colbert (I think he's truthtastic!), he's right on the money about one thing: The #1 Threat to America is Bears - aka " those furry, godless killing machines." I'm not going to post the photo from this story because I don't want to give all you hard-working, bear-fearing Americans nightmares, but check this out:
Apparently those Sloth Bears ain't so damn slothful after all. Word to the wise, friends, today it's Barbary macaques, tomorrow it may be us. Don't say you weren't warned.
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Bears killed and ate a monkey in a Dutch zoo in front of horrified visitors, witnesses and the zoo said Monday. In the incident Sunday at the Beekse Bergen Safari Park, several Sloth bears chased the Barbary macaque into an electric fence, where it was stunned.
It recovered and fled onto a wooden structure, where one bear pursued and mauled it to death.
The park confirmed the killing in a statement, saying: "In an area where Sloth bears, great apes and Barbary macaques have coexisted peacefully for a long time, the harmony was temporarily disturbed during opening hours on Sunday."
