Rocky, the 700lb grizzly bear that recently featured in Will Ferrell's film Semi-Pro has killed its handler.

The bear that had been touted as the "best trained in showbusiness", bit its handler Stephan Miller on the neck.

Although the victim's brother Randy told the Associated Press that the bite occurred during "playful" wrestling behaviour by a "loving, affectionate, friendly, safe bear".
He explained it was "a flash bite and it hit him in a very vulnerable spot".
