What The…

I don’t even know where to begin with this one

A woman in Australia has been killed by her pet camel after the animal apparently tried to have sex with her.
The woman was found dead at the family’s sheep and cattle ranch near the town of Mitchell in Queensland.
…On Saturday the woman apparently became the object of the male camel’s desire.
It knocked her to the ground, lay on top of her and displayed what the police delicately described as mating behaviour.

The poor woman. Evidently there were warning signs, though:

The camel was just 10 months old but already weighed 152kg (336lbs) and had come close to suffocating the family’s pet goat on a number of occasions.

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.

    It was a beer festival, not a bear festival. That one vowel is important.

  3. John says:

    Know what he said when he jumped in the cage nekkid?:
    “I come bare to bear beer, bears.”
    No wonder they ate him.

    John, you don’t think he said “Ah! Soviet girls! I’ve missed you so!”?
