Man Loves Bear
Zoo keepers at London Zoo were left puzzled yesterday when a man was found serenading one of their bears with a bunch of posies.
Robert Painsbury-Throgmorten, from West Norwood in south London, has fallen in love with one of the zoo’s Polish brown bears, Zuzanna. Police were called to the scene when Mr Painsbury-Throgmorten refused to leave the site without getting a goodbye kiss.
A police spokesperson explained, “It appears the gentleman in question has been infatuated for some two weeks now, ever since he ‘oliday’d in the Bieszczady Mountains region of Poland.”
Mr Painsbury-Throgmorten says, “We intend to marry, but we’re not in any rush. We’ll be enjoying a long engagement before tying the knot sometime next summer.”
A spokesperson for the Zoo said, “No, they won’t.”
