How harsh Siberians are: a resident of Tyva fought off a bear by biting off his tongueBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/article/how-harsh-siberians-are-a-resident-of-tyva-fought-off-a-bear-by-biting-off-his-tongue.html
A rather unusual incident occurred recently in the Piy-Khem district of the Republic of Tyva. A local resident, 29-year-old Nikolai Ygrit, was attacked by a bear, but he managed to escape ... by biting off the animal's tongue.
All the details of what happened, as well as why the victim (man) was brought to administrative responsibility, read in our material.
A fight between a Siberian and a bear took place on June 2. A man in the company of two of his friends went to the Hutinsky nature reserve to collect dry horns that had fallen from animals. Already on the spot, the rogolovs split up and went each in their own direction. Unfortunately, our hero was unlucky — instead of "prey" he met a brown bear on his way.
He tried to scare the animal away and started shouting at him. However, this did not help, after a few minutes a fight broke out between them, if you can call it that — the bear attacked the Siberian, knocked him to the ground and began to bite. When the predator's jaws got close to Nikolai's face, he found no other way out of the situation, except to bite off the attacker's tongue.
The trick worked. In a matter of seconds, the bear disappeared into the depths of the forest, leaving the victim and his tongue behind. By the way, this is not the first time that harsh Russian men defeat wild animals in a fight. Earlier we told about the Ural man who sent an angry bear into a knockdown.
The man called his friends for help, and soon he was taken to the hospital. There, doctors diagnosed him with "lacerated-bitten wounds of the face, scalp, upper extremities and anterior surface of the abdomen."
Despite the fact that Nikolai is in fact a victim, he also got hurt by the police. The fact is that back in May, due to forest fires in Tuva, an emergency regime was introduced, and visiting the forest is strictly prohibited. Three comrades were brought to administrative responsibility for illegal entry into its territory.
Unfortunately, the fate of the bear remains unknown. Let's hope he's all right.
