I’ve been to quite a few beer festivals, but I don’t think I’ll be attending any in Serbia any time soon. From the article:
BELGRADE, Serbia (Reuters) — A 23-year old Serb was found dead and half-eaten in the bear cage of Belgrade Zoo at the weekend during the annual beer festival.
The man was found naked, with his clothes lying intact inside the cage. Two adult bears, Masha and Misha, had dragged the body to their feeding corner and reacted angrily when keepers tried to recover it.
“There’s a good chance he was drunk or drugged. Only an idiot would jump into the bear cage,” zoo director Vuk Bojovic told Reuters.
Local media reported that police found several mobile phones inside the cage, as well as bricks, stones and beer cans.
Gotta love the zoo director’s quote. “Drunk”, “drugged”, or “an idiot.” I’ve seen all three at beer festivals before (sometimes in the same person) — just never with a couple of bears involved. If you ask me, that’s Darwinism at work.
