A 23-year old Serb was found dead and half-eaten in the bear cage of Belgrade Zoo at the weekend during the annual beer festival.

The man was found naked, with his clothes lying intact inside the cage.

Two adult bears, Masha and Misha, had dragged the body to their feeding corner and reacted angrily when keepers tried to recover it.

"There's a good chance he was drunk or drugged. Only an idiot would jump into the bear cage," zoo director Vuk Bojovic said.

Local media reported that police found several mobile phones inside the cage, as well as bricks, stones and beer cans.

(In case you're wondering what a teddy bear is doing stuck to a computer. I thinks its a cover for a USB memory stick. The photo did seem apt - you think - wtf is a teddy bear doing stuck to a computer? My question is wtf is a naked man doing in a bear enclosure - and why are there are a bunch of mobile phones doing inside?? Anyhow the photo of the teddy bear is droll compared to a photo of a half-eaten man, yeah?)
