Take It Outside Buddy

We usually watch the news for our daily dose of current events and reality, but every now and then the international wire services turn up something a little more entertaining.

Apparently a drunk Ukrainian picked a fight with aa almost 600 pound grizzly bear after bragging about how strong he was to his buddies.

After drinking with his buddies he decided to show his buddies just how strong he was when he decided to pick a fight with the biggest animal he could find. Conveniently enough, the local zoo had just what he was looking for. He climbed over the railing into the bear cage and started to hit one of them on the leg.

The Grizzly was polite enough to bat him away with a swipe of its paw but the drunk kept on coming. When the man hit him again the bear pinned him to the ground and began mauling him. I would have to imagine the fight would have looked a little like this. Zoo staff said that the whole thing lasted less than a minute and the other bears were just getting ready to join in and attack him as well. Without their quick action he would have certainly been killed. Now I'm not condoning the feeding of idiots to bears to try and keep their widespread grasp under control, but if they are going to be dumb enough to climb in and start something, I say let the bear have it's fun!

Besides, who hasn't gone to a bar with a guy like this only to end up having to either drag him out of there before it all hits the fan, or fighting your own way out before the cops arrive. A friend of mine solved the problem with a buddy constantly picking fights and dragging his pals into it by allowing the moron to get thoroughly whupped by the four guys he was harassing (expecting backup, of course). That was the last time he stirred up anything like that again! I've heard the bouncers say take it outside, but to go all the way to the zoo? Now that's dedication to the art of buffoonery!

Although, if that happened here a lot more often the zoo would be a lot more interesting than the current pattern of watching animals sleep during business hours because it too hot during the daytime to be out and about.

I can never understand why after a couple of beers some guys think their superman and are invincible.

See there's a bear that isn't crap. Unlike the majority of bears which are either lazy or overly fussy (panda), or not bears at all (Koala).

No, respect for the Grizzly - they are big bastards and I have no complaint with them, even after a beer.

Nobody ever drank a bear and then decided to fight a beer after did they?

wow. Some people's idiocy never ceases to amaze me. I certainly would have been cheering for the bear. He was helping cleanse the gene pool, after all!

lol @ 'that's dedication to the art of buffoonery!'

My ex had one of those 'friends', any time he went out to the pub with him, he'd generally end up coming home with a ripped shirt or a black eye.

Some people seem to think they're 10 foot tall and bulletproof after a couple of beers I guess.

Alcohol gives lots of people that "I'm 10 feet tall and bullet-proof" syndrome (it's happened to The Peanut King more than once...;)

You are soooo right. Let the idiots brawl it out with the animals more often, and zoos would be packed daily.

Benefits to the zoo
Benefits to mankind.

*Although only decent sized animals. A drunk fighting a meer-kat wouldn't be very nice.

Ha! I got a kick out of that video.

I think the Ukranian was actually bragging to his pals about how smart he was and he went to challenge the bear to a game of chess. Knowing it would lose, the bear decided plan B, mauling, was in order.
