Truly man-eating bear attacks are uncommon, but are known to occur when the animals are diseased or natural prey is scarce, often leading them to attack and eat anything they are able to kill. This is the horrifying moment a man is gored by a bear after teasing the creature by dangling food in its jaws.
Naiphum Promratee, 36, had been with four pals when he decided to visit the temple in rural Phetchabun province, Thailand, this morning. The moment the bear began sinking its jaws into its beleaguered victim. The monks keep about two dozen wild pigs and a number of bears in a small enclosure and allow guests to feed if they dare risk it.
Mr. Promratee had been standing on a surrounding wall when he reached into the enclosure to feed the animals. But foolishly he began teasing one of the bears with food. The beast suddenly stood on its legs and grabbed him, dragging him into the enclosure, knocking him unconscious before tearing a lump from his shoulders.
The man’s friends eventually distracted the enraged creature with a stick and jumped into the pit to free him. He was rushed to hospital where he is recovering and able to talk. The victim was lucky to escape alive and not many people are so lucky following a bear attack.
