The brown bear is among the world`s largest land carnivores

A drunken man was killed by two brown bears Sunday at a zoo in southern Ukraine while attempting to snap a photograph of them, witnesses said, according to UPI.

A local television station said the man was trying to take a photo of the bruins when he accidentally toppled into their open-air cage and passed out, RIA Novosti reported Sunday.

Onlookers said they were yelling to alert authorities as they watched the bears rip the man into pieces.

The brown bear is highly territorial and among the world`s largest land carnivores.
