n extremely careless zoo-goer nearly lost her iPhone recently after accidentally throwing it to the bears.
Footage from an elevated rail car above the Yancheng Wildlife Park in Jiangsu province shows the smartphone being thrown out of the vehicle ahead, landing beside a couple of bears. The animals curiously sniff at the item before taking it away.
While the smartphone’s owner has yet to explain the incident, a zoo employee has hypothesized that the woman had meant to throw down an apple to the bears, but inadvertently chucked her iPhone instead. The mix-up has inspired many a joke from puny netizens, quipping that the woman got her Apple confused with an apple.
Zoo staff actually managed to return the phone to the tourist, though it was broken in the fall.
