PITTSBURGH -- Polar bears at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium got an unexpected visitor when a deer jumped about 20 feet into their pool.

"One of the grounds keepers asked if we had seen the deer swim with the polar bears," said Game Caldenron, a zoo visitor.

Surveillance video from the zoo shows the deer jumping into the pool. The animal nearly landed on a floating white block. One bear immediately dove in to check out his new pool partner.

Officials said the deer jumped an 8-foot fence to enter the zoo and had been wandering around for a while. After jumping into the pool, the deer made a couple of laps around the pool before climbing out with both bears following close behind.

Eventually zookeepers were able to corral the bears and deer inside.

Although the bears did not hurt the deer, it did receive some injuries and was in shock, so it had to be euthanized. The bears were not hurt and were allowed back into their habitat shortly after the incident was over.

if they had to kill it anyway, they might as well have let the bears eat it.

The one polar bear in that exhibit is constantly pacing - I thought he would be over it since the last time I saw them (st. patty's day) cause they were new to the "cage", but nope, definitely still pacing

exactly what i was just thinking. why did they even interfere - deer are not exactly endangered. they should have just let nature run it's course.
those poor fuckers in there probably haven't had any live game in years. they should, as a reward for spending their lives in the shitty white prison they're given, entertaining retarded, shitdiapered children all day long every day for the rest of their lives.


deers can carry some nasty dieseases- I doubt they'd risk the polar bears health for it.
Also you have to think about if the deer injured one of the bears by kicking it or even accidently jabbing its eye out with its antlers, sounds stupid I know but zoos fork out some serious loot on their animals- they don't want to have to pay anymore than they have to.

although I do agree that most animals at the zoos need some more excitment when it comes to feeding time- tigers getting handed steaks is weak- throw some bunnies in there or something.

zoos are totally sad when you think about them. good thing the kids that go to them are pretty stupid and don't realize it.
