Bear kills mate in German zoo

OFFICIALS at a German zoo say that a male brown bear attacked and killed a female bear in front of horrified onlookers.

Christoph Langner, the director of the zoo in the northern coastal German city of Stralsund, said the incident occurred on Saturday afternoon. He said zoo officials are still trying to determine why the male, a Syrian brown bear named Balou, attacked the female, Klara. Klara arrived at the zoo two years ago and Balou about half a year later. A zoo spokesman said the two had showed signs lately of having adjusted to each other, having been initially kept apart.
