Polar Bear's are awesome...

because they despise fat stupid people as much as I do.

One adult polar bit her several times after she plunged into the moat, police said.

Zoo workers tossed rescue rings toward the woman to hoist her out and distract polar bears swimming nearby, said Goerg Gebhard, a Berlin police officer.

"They saved her life," Gebhard told CNN.

The woman was severely injured and was being treated at a hospital, police said.

It's unclear why the woman entered the bear habitat, but police issued her a citation for trespassing.

Insane.

When you believe those bears are cuddly hugging sweethearts you have mental problems.

Rumours are that she lost everything, like, her job, money, husband. How stupid, indeed. She would have been better off getting a gun and killing 20 preferably innocent people before killing herself.

If you check the Darwin Awards website, there are several. A testament to the stupidity of mankind.

Was a person in Sweden where you can drive through a lion nest(In Kolmården, a swedish Zoo) that went out of the car to try too feed the lions, he was killed by them. Could be that story you thinking about, wouldn't suprise me if it was in the Darwin Awards

Ah, maybe she's just a masochist at her core. Perhaps we should give the bear some kind of consolation prize for almost removing some dead wood from the gene pool.

Yeah, I could think of several, far less unpleasant ways to end my life than by getting ripped to shreds. She should have just found a nice, tall building to jump off of.

Naw...
She was walking by and thought the Polar Bears looked hungry, and this in addition to certain suicidal thoughts drove her to dive into habitat. So she was looking out for the Polar Bears, but then she backed out, turning it into a big tease for everyone involved.

Maybe it wasn't a genuine suicide attempt. Maybe it was a desperate cry for help, using the stupidest method imaginable.

These things are real predators and can "smell" you from miles away, run and swim very fast too...when hungry they don't hesitate to get into houses. They're nothing like the more "common bears".

Actually, you described just about every type of bear in North America. Just insert the color, size and aggression level of your choice.

With the notable exception of the Alaskan brown bear, yes. My point was that they are all dangerous and can kill you very quickly.

Depending on your point of view, that woman was either extremely lucky or extremely unlucky.

You posted a fraction of a second sooner than I, I was adding to Darthy's comment.

But interesting fact though.

Mandy K is a single mother of a seven year old girl who had been unemployed and experiencing difficulties finding a job.

Not being able to provide for children can place any parent in a distressed state. Coupled with depression resulting from other circumstances affecting her life, she was a person experiencing great emotional distress...to which this reaction was an extreme response to.

Making fun of someone in a distressed mental condition is not funny. Mental illness can affect anyone at anytime, given the correct set of physical and social/emotional circumstances. Whether it's a soldier who served in Iraq/Afghanistan (etc) with PTSD or a teenage girl with an eating disorder, it is not funny.

Perhaps none of you making wisecracks has had a family member or loved one that suffers from mental illness or has ever been in a distressed emotional state?

I hope for Mandy and her family's sake that she gets the medical and counselling support she needs.

No, you find it unethical and objectionable, that doesn't mean it's universally not funny. If somebody cracks a joke or makes fun of something, it's funny, at least to them. Declaring that something is not funny is an entirely subjective statement.

Subjective? Can it be anything else? You also seem to be purporting an opinion on the nature of what constitutes humour, which is also "an entirely subjective statement." Perhaps come back with an empirical test or "Sabre Funny machine" so we can put this wayward speculation to rest !
