Pet Bear Kills Its Stupid Owner

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A 37-year-old Pennsylvania woman died Sunday after being mauled by her pet black bear, authorities said.

Kelly Ann Walz was attacked when she entered the bear`s cage to feed the 350-pound animal and clean its cage, according to Pennsylvania State Police. The bear lived in a 15-by-15-foot steel and concrete enclosure on Walz`s property in Ross Township." Read More

Bears are wild animals who love to forage in the woods for foods; it`s cruel and unusual punishment to confine a bear in a concrete enclosure.

"Pet bear" is an oxymoron; it`s insane to treat one of these magnificent beasts as a domesticated animal.

It`s difficult to feel any sympathy for Walz; it`s stupid and inhumane to keep a wild animal in a cage.

According to police "a neighbor shot and killed the bear that attacked the owner." The cops should have arrested the nosy neighbor for killing the bear. Walz didn`t "own" the bear; nobody should fool himself into thinking that they can own of these beautiful and feral beasts.
