MOSCOW (September 17, 1999 8:46 p.m. EDT) - A young girl was killed by a bear cub at a zoo in Siberia, the Interfax news agency reported Friday.

The 7- or 8-year-old child had been trying to feed the bear cubs in the central Siberian zoo.

One animal knocked her over with a single blow, pulled her into the cage and mauled her to death.

The bear, along with another cub in the cage, was shot dead by zoo keepers who had attempted, in vain, to save the girl.
