An epic story recently came to the attention of Japanese media. 'Man fights off bear with bare hands!' — one of the screaming headlines.
63-year-old man was fishing in the mountains out in the wild in Japan, when large 190-cm Asian black bear ran out from the woods and attacked him. The beast knocked man down to the ground, biting and scratching him all over his body.
Our hero managed to make his way out and quickly understood there was no way to outrun the bear, so he decided to take the fight using his well-honed karate skills.
'The bear was so strong, and it knocked me down. I thought it’s either I kill him or he kills me!' — said bear fighter.
He assumed a karate fighting stance and managed to jab and punch the bear in his eyes, thereby sending the beast back to the woods. After that, the proud winner got back to his car and successfully drove to the hospital struggling different injuries to his head, arm and leg.
“He drove himself to hospital, and he even remembered to grab the fish that he had caught,” — said local police officer.
Despite everyone's excitement the Japanese authorities have warned the country's citizens to take this course of action in case you come face-to-face with one of various wild bears inhabiting their country.
