ALLENTOWN, Pa. — Authorities say a woman was killed by her pet black bear as she cleaned its cage.Serves the stupid fool right for having a bear, lion, and tiger...
State police say 37-year-old Kelly Ann Walz was mauled to death Sunday evening by the 350-pound (160-kilogram) bear.
The Morning Call newspaper reports that a state Game Commission spokesman says Walz kept the bear inside a steel and concrete cage near her house in northeastern Pennsylvania.
Officials say Walz threw some dog food to one side of the cage to distract the bear while she cleaned the other side. At some point the bear turned on her and attacked.
The bear was shot and killed. No information was available about who shot the bear.
Game officials say Walz also owned a Bengal tiger and an African lion and had licenses to own them.
