Drunk Man Wanders Into Zoo, Leaves Without Something He Came With

David Shepard, of North Dakota, and his friend, 23-year-old Cody Nelson Kage illegally snuck into Roosevelt Park Zoo on Saturday night. Shepard, 21, and Kage climbed the outer fence and started walking around the zoo. They then found the bear enclosure when Shepard started shouting and stuck his arm through the fencing to see if he could get the animal to come closer.

The bear bit Shepard's hand--he had to be transported to Trinity Hospital where staff told police he had been attacked by a bear. Shepard is still in the hospital, but will be charged with criminal trespass, a class C felony, when he is released from the hospital.

In addition, Kage was arrested and charged with the same crime. Zoo officials are keeping an eye on the bear to make sure it does not get stressed by the attack. Roosevelt Zoo Director, Becky Dewitz said "That is their protected home and they felt threatened and they also felt scared." Police say the two were under the influence of alcohol at the time.

The man's play date with a bear didn't go as planned.
