Bear vs. Idiot Woman: Who Ya Got?



(AP) - A male polar bear named “Blinky” at the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage grabbed and badly injured an Australian tourist on Saturday. 29-year-old Sydney woman Kathryn Warburton had climbed over two protective fences in an attempt to take close-up photographs. Evidently, she encroached too close for Blinky’s liking. He leaned forward, grabbed Warburton with his paws and dragged her towards him. Warburton sustained a broken leg and bite wounds and has undergone surgery. 

OK, since she lived, I don't feel guilty for smiling when I saw the bear holding her tennis shoe.

I had to chuckle too at the tennis shoe. It's not the bear's fault that she got in his space.

Just gland it was not a black person and the storm of "black Live Matter" protests to follow.

This is an old video that has made the rounds on Youtube over the years.

I think it's summed up accurately in the title: Idiot Woman. Hey, lady! Ever hear of a zoom lens?
The sad part is that she'll most likely get a small fortune when the zoo settles with her out of court.
And the bear will probably get put down for being a public menace. But if you think about it, shouldn't that type of dangerous animal be locked up for safety? Oh, wait...

When I saw the last name I decided to re-read the AP quote as if it was Patrick Warburton narrating it.

If only she had brought him a Coca-Cola none of this would have occurred.

I visited Blinky when I was in Anchorage; he/she was a beautiful animal. They later sold tee shirts with the photo of him holding the shoe in his mouth and saying, " Send me another one, this one got away."
On a sad note; Blinky died of a virus transmitted by cats of all things!

This happened over 20 years ago. Blinky died of liver disease, probably caused by toxic dumbass flesh consumption, in 1995.
