A bear ripped off the arm of a nine-year-old boy who tried to feed it during a school trip and then ate it.
The incident happened at Qalqilya zoo, in the Palestinian city of Qalqilya, on the western edge of the West Bank.
A police spokesman today said the boy approached the caged bear with food when the animal pounced, severing the limb at the elbow.
The bear then ate the arm. The boy is currently being treated at a local hospital.
The zoo, the only one of its kind in the West Bank, was built in 1986 and is currently home to around 170 animals.
The zoos in America make it impossible to get close enough to a bear to try to feed it.
