Sadly, they do tend to happen a lot because people are usually drunk this time of the year and plenty of Christmas parties involve booze.

The mishap took place in a guest house in the Russian city of Achinsk. The said guest house apparently kept a big brown bear caged for the
While her arm was outstretched, the brown bear wrenched it off and took it inside his cage. Afterward, the said bear ate the woman’s severed arm while the party-goers rushed her to the hospital as she bled. Other guests said they usually fed the bears using sticks.

Meanwhile, the bear will apparently not be put down despite the incident and the said guest house is finally making plans to release them after defying an earlier police order to free the brown bear.
