Pet bear kills Pennsylvania woman

Every time I read one of these stories I shake my head. What are you doing keeping a bear, lion or tiger at home.

(CNN) -- A 37-year-old Pennsylvania woman died Sunday after being mauled by her pet black bear, authorities said.

Kelly Ann Walz was attacked when she entered the bear's cage to feed the 350-pound animal and clean its cage, according to Pennsylvania State Police. The bear lived in a 15-by-15-foot steel and concrete enclosure on Walz's property in Ross Township.

I know this is terrible but GOOD FOR THE BEAR! How cruel to keep it in a little cage like that. I hope they didn't kill it.

Unfortunately the bear is now a rug.
