BEIJING (AP) — A bear in China has bitten off the arm of a 9-year-old boy who tried to feed it through the cage.

Media reports say the attack happened Saturday afternoon at Pingdingshan Hebin Park in central China, which has a zoo inside. The boy managed to push his arm through the bear's cage to feed it when the bear bit him.

A doctor at the Pingdingshan Number 152 Hospital, who treated the boy, said Sunday that he lost his entire right arm, which had to be amputated.
