Don't Feed The Bear....Yourself.
Say it with me... DON'T CLIMB INTO THE BEAR ENCLOSURE!
This is the chilling moment a bear clamped a man in his jaws after he climbed into the enclosure at a Swiss zoo.
The mentally handicapped man was left seriously wounded - but astonishingly managed to escape with his life.
The 25-year-old climbed on to a wall surrounding the Bären Park (Bear Park) in the city of Bern, Switzerland, before falling 13ft into the enclosure, police said.
The unnamed man was then attacked by four-year-old bear Finn, who caused severe injuries to the his head and one of his legs, before a policeman shot the creature, injuring it and forcing it to retreat into a cave.
The other bear in the large enclosure, Finn's 10-year-old sister Bjoerk, was not involved in the attack.
Both the man and Finn are currently being treated for their respective injuries.
