Russian Man Plays Dead During A Bear Attack In Order To survive

According to Russian media, a fisherman escaped a brown bear fatal blow by “playing dead” and then driving himself to the hospital.

Despite the bear’s vicious attack, which ripped the skin off his scalp and left bite wounds on his leg and arms, the man made his own way to the hospital.

The man had been illegally fishing for salmon along the River Lyutoga on the east coast Russian island of Sakhalin, just north of Japan, according to local media.

The unnamed man was knocked out by a blow to the head, but when he came to, he remained still, which was likely crucial to his survival.

“He pretended to be dead, and the bear eventually left,” a friend said. It was only by chance that the predator didn’t bite into his neck.”

The fishermen drove four miles to Aniva Central District Hospital, bleeding, gashed, and bitten.

“In all the history of bear attacks, we don’t recall a victim getting to the hospital by himself,” a doctor said.

The unnamed fisherman was treated in the surgical department and was given a rabies shot.

According to locals, the man had been breaking strict local laws by fishing for masu salmon with nets.

According to a local report, “the bear acted like a fishing inspector.”

After the attack, the man promised not to go fishing again.

On Sunday night in America, a bear viciously mauled a man who discovered cubs in his garage when he went to lock it up.

On Sunday, the Colorado resident suffered severe cuts to his head and legs, landing him in the hospital, but he is expected to survive.

Wildlife officials have issued a new warning to residents in the area to keep food under lock and key, as a container of birdseed inside the garage likely drew the beasts, according to the New York Post.

The man was taken to the hospital for treatment of his wounds from the attack, but he is expected to survive, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) in a statement released Monday.

The man, who lives near Steamboat Springs, noticed his garage door was open around 11 p.m. on Sunday, and when he went to close it, he was attacked.

A mother bear and her two cubs were inside.

According to the CPW statement, “as the man attempted to slowly back away from the garage, the sow attacked.”

Wildlife officials and park rangers apprehended and killed the mother bear, whose body was sent to a lab for necropsy.

Officials are attempting to capture and relocate her cubs, who are still on the loose.

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
