In the village of Kosovo River district, Ivano-Frankivsk region, a 43-year-old man was attacked by a bear. The victim was taken to the casualty department of Kosovo district hospital in shock.
Doctors discovered he had two superficial wounds on the chest and abdomen and a deep wound on his leg. The man himself admits that he had met the beast on a narrow path, not far from his home.
"Climbing up on its hind legs, the bear roared and jumped on me. Then began to drag me around like a toy. He does not bite, just pushed me. And then jumped up and ran away …" — says the victim.
He claims that the bears have not approached so close to people's homes.
