Cinnamon Bear, an 11-year-old northern gray wolf, was shot and killed at Brookfield Zoo today when it grabbed the arm of an idiotic woman who "apparently hopped a 3 1/2-foot fence and reached through a second 10-foot chain-link fence to touch the wolf." Read the story in the Tribune. [Login: gapers/gapers]
