AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) -- Bears killed and devoured a monkey in front of horrified visitors at a Dutch zoo, officials and witnesses said.

Visitors reported that the grisly scene began as several bears chased the monkey, a macaque, onto a wooden structure at Beekse Bergen Safari Park.

They said a bear tried unsuccessfully to shake the monkey loose, ignoring attempts by keepers to distract it. The bear then climbed up and grabbed the monkey, mauling it to death and bringing it to its concrete den, where three bears ate it.

maybe, but it's the usual sort of thing that's expected at zoos! Big grin

Still, a nice "real-life" lesson for the kids eh?

Well ... that's nature off course, however I doubt you would ever see a bear - macaque encounter in real life nature .. bear in mind geography!

Well on one hand these kind of things in wild life is called 'Natural Habitat'. A zoo can never get that close, the animals are captives. The bear had a short taste of freedom. Feel bad for the monkey though.
What else can one expect??

I think some bears need to be sent for sensitivity training. They have to learn to refrain from actions that could easily upset people. I really hope those who witnessed this horror can one day get over their psychological trauma.

Sadly, I fear most will never be able to eat a rare monkey again. Medium well, perhaps, but definitely not rare.

But what would a caribou do with a monkey?

It would likely smash the monkey with its giant trunk. Then it would finish the job using its enormous tusks.

People would pay to see this -- many love to watch gore and violence. The zoo needs to make this into an annual event. Pick the most irritating animal, and throw it in the bears' den. It could be immediately followed by a monster truck rally and some pro wrestling.
