(Newser) – A woman survived a polar bear attack in a Berlin Zoo enclosure when keepers pulled her to safety after knocking the animal away, the Daily Telegraph reports. One of four bears in the enclosure attacked the woman in a moat after she entered—a feat that required jumping a fence, hedges, and a wall. She sustained serious injuries to her arms and legs; police didn't say why she'd entered the area.
