Polar Bear Attack At German Zoo: Woman Bitten After Jumping Into Zoo Enclosure (VIDEO)

In this shocking video, polar bears at a German zoo attacked a woman who climbed into the enclosure. The Daily Mail reports:

She was bitten by one of the four older polar bears in the enclosure and not by the famous Knut, who took Germany by storm as a cub after he was hand-raised by a keeper.

It is not known why the woman pulled the dangerous stunt but she initially appeared to be elated as she swam towards a bear in the enclosure.
