Asshat-at-Large Beats to Death Bear Cub, Dumps Body in NYC Central Park

Police told AFP that officers were called to Manhattan’s largest public park shortly before 10 am by a warden after the baby bear was found lying in a grassy area.

They said the bear was 3 feet long and transported to the Bronx Zoo.

The discovery baffled officials and disturbed members of the public, who go jogging, relax, walk their dogs and play with their children in Central Park.

No animals have been reported missing from any zoo in the city, leading to speculation that the bear may have been killed elsewhere and its body dumped.

The bear, somehow separated from her mother, was later on Monday transported to New York state department of environmental conservation in Albany for a necropsy.
