MOSCOW, October 7 (RIA Novosti) – A 55-year-old resident of Siberia’s Republic of Yakutia stabbed a bear to death with a knife when the animal attacked him, the republic’s police department said on Monday.

"The bear attacked him when he was feeding his horses. The man stayed calm and resisted the attack – he took out the knife and managed to stab the animal several times and to kill it,” police said.

The man sustained numerous wounds to his head and face and was taken to hospital. Doctors say his condition is not life-threatening.
