A GRIZZLY bear tore off a woman's arm and ATE IT after she bragged about feeding it through a cage at a boozy Christmas party. The angry beast grabbed her outstretched hand as she fed the wild animal through the bars of its cramped cage. The bear wrenched off her arm during a Christmas party at an Aidashki guest house in Krasnoyarsk region of Russia. The unnamed 53-year-old woman is now in intensive care in a “grave” condition following the attack in the city of Achinsk. She suffered huge blood loss and underwent emergency surgery on the stump of her arm. The wild animal is kept caged as entertainment for visitors to a guest house - where it cannot hibernate in winter or roam free.

Mr Jarvis sees the car park fee and promptly does an angry about turn, setting us off on the correct path.Pulling up to the familiar entrance (all Center Parcs locations tend to have the same vibe) we’re each given a blue wristband not dissimilar to a watch. We’re told this acts not only as the key to our apartment for the weekend, but to the swimming … [Read more...] about Did you know Center Parcs and Disneyland have opened a new resort?
THE Met Office has named the string of storms which are set to hit Britain this winter. Any name has the chance of being listed, but the weather service will not use those which are "not proper". Is yours on the list? The 2017-2018 season kicked off with Storm Aileen, the first of 10 severe weather events to be named in the past year, and ended with Hector earlier this summer. This season, Ali will be the first storm to blow in across Britain. The male named storm will be followed by Bronagh, Callum and Deidre. Weather officials claim try to go for the names which are popular but also reflect the culture and diversity of UK and Ireland.
