PA Woman, Kelly Ann Walz, Killed By Pet Black Bear

black bear PA Woman, Kelly Ann Walz, Killed By Pet Black Bear

Kelly Ann Walz, 37, who has exotic animals as pets, was killed after being attacked by her pet black bear. Read more on Kelly Ann  Walz’s mauling death below.

Pennsylvania State Police report they were called to the woman’s home at about 5 p.m. on Sunday and found dead from being attacked by the black bear.

According to Lehigh Valley Live, Tim Conway, the game commission’s educational supervisor for their region, said Kelly Ann Walz went inside the bear’s 15-by-15-foot steel and concrete enclosure to clean it and feed the bear.

Walz reportedly threw a shovelful of dog food to one side of the cage to distract the black bear while she cleaned the other side of the cage.  But at some point the 350-pound bear turned on Walz and killed her.

The truly disturbing part of the story is that Walz’s children and the neighbor’s children witness the bear attack and went for help. A neighbor shot and killed the bear while it was on top of Walz.

“Why this woman chose to go in the same area that the bear was in is beyond me. It’s a fatal mistake,” he said. “These things are not tame animals, they’re wild animals.”

Conway said the bear had been kept as a pet since 2000 when the owners applied for a license. This was not a free-roaming bear that attacked the woman. She also had a Bengal tiger and an African lion, cougar, jaguar, tiger, black bear, leopard and two servals.

Why in the world would anyone want to have those exotic animals captive at their home, especially with children around?  Go to the effing zoo you know!
