BearA 27-year-old man has been mauled to death by a bear while trying to photograph it. The man had tried to climb over a 4m fence in an attempt to get a better shot of the animal at a zoo in Mykolaiv on Sunday but fell over into the bear's enclosure.

Workers at the zoo tried to stop the bear from mauling the man by throwing distractions such as loaves of bread and plastic bottles. They also tried pouring buckets of water over the bear but unfortunately their actions were ineffective and the man later died.

Do you not think that the title of 'bear necessities' is a little inappropriate? A man has been killed for gods sake

Yea... a man who was so stupid as to climb over the enclosure :

I'll save my sympathy for more deserving victims.

We have all done some really stupid stuff to get a good photo, granted this is a bit o.t.t. but I feel for the family they are the ones who will suffer.
Photography’s a horrible game sometimes; whenever you get that camera in the way of you and danger its like it isn’t there.
Just another stupid person taking chance's with an animal in his own domain,i feel sorry for his family,but the man should have known better than to take a risk with such a powerful animal.

no one doubts he was bloody stupid but what was out of order was the humorous headline. I thought we were better than to laugh at someones horrific death

Horrible way to die. Sad
What a horrific way to die, poor man and his poor family.
I am a little shocked that people think that because someone does something silly then they deserve to die, how would you feel if it was your brother, son, father, best mate? We are all human and all do silly things sometimes.
well i feel for is family. but now that bear could be put down.
all because he wanted a better pic. yes i have done wronge but this man payed with is life.
