An 84-year-old woman chased away a wild bear in Russia. The former hunter encountered the predator that collected berries. She scares the animal away with an interesting method.
In eastern Russia, an 84-year-old woman was surprised by a bear while collecting berries. The Russian state agency Ria Novosti reported that she faced the animal directly, but did not run away.
Instead, the woman from a village in Yakutia lit up a newspaper and yelled at the bear. “She saved her life with this effective method,” wrote media from the region not far from the city of Yakutsk.
The authorities have therefore confirmed the incident. The 84-year-old was himself a hunter. Experts advised that if you come across a bear in the wild, make as much noise as possible because the animals don’t like it – or play dead.
