Approve of this headline, Yoda would not

Here’s a pretty terrible story out of China:

A bear in central China has bitten off the arm of a 9-year-old boy who tried to feed it through its cage, state media and a doctor said today. The attack happened yesterday afternoon at Pingdingshan Hebin Park in Henan province, 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.

Here’s how I saw it headlined: “Boy, 9, Loses Arm Trying to Feed Zoo Bear“.

Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try. And that boy did not try — he did: “feed zoo bear”.
