    BELGRADE, Serbia (Reuters) -- 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 told Reuters.

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

    Not the bear's first Serbian Surprise, I guess.

    Not news, but certainly weird. Scary, really. Depressing, sure.

    Even though encounters with the microscopic bug are extraordinarily rare, it's killed six boys and young men this year
    That doesn't really strike me as "extremely rare"

    This guy uses electric eels to light his Christmas tree.

    The best line of the article: ""If we could gather all electric eels from all around the world, we would be able to light up an unimaginably giant Christmas tree," Minawa told Reuters Television." That's deep.

    "I would love to have an eel like this at home. This is very nature-friendly," said visitor Harumi Yayoi.

    Yes, keeping wild animals captive is absolutely nature friendly.
    And then you can eat them.

    How big would an unimaginably large Christmas tree be, anyway? I just can't imagine it.
