Fisherman Saved From Vicious Bear Attack by Justin Bieber Ringtone
Justin Bieber may have millions of fans worldwide, but Russia’s bears don’t appear to admire the pop brat’s music – which proved fortunate for one lucky fisherman.
Igor Vorozhbitsyn had his life saved by a Justin Bieber ringtone, when his mobile phone went off during a potentially fatal attack by a brown bear.
The 42-year-old was pounced on as he was walking to a favorite fishing spot in northern Russia’s Yakutia Republic and firmly believed that he was going to be killed.
Mr Vorozhbitsyn – now recovering from his mauling – explained: ‘I had parked my car and was walking towards the spot I’d marked out when there was a tremendous impact on my back and the bear was on top of me.’
‘I couldn’t believe my luck when the phone went off and he fled.
Adult brown bears can weigh as much as 600kg and have been known to kill wolves and even Siberian tigers in confrontations.
