This man bearhugged a bear to death

What would you do if a bear came charging out of the woods and tried to eat you?

You’d probably let it, after flailing your arms uselessly a bit and perhaps soiling yourself. Several times.

Ideally, you’d be walking with Bosnia-Herzegovina shepherd Blazo Grkovic and you could save your pants.

BECAUSE HE’D JUST GRAB IT IN A HUG AND STRANGLE IT.

“It grabbed me and went to bite me and I grabbed it round the throat to keep it from getting a grip,” he said in an interview after the attack last week.

“I squeezed and squeezed until it collapsed.”

Bearing a few deep scratches and a forgivably macho smirk, the 48-year-old told reporters the bear was “so fast that as I stood up it was on top of me”.

Yes, he gave it a bear hug until it died.

ADDENDUM: He also used a “small carpenter’s ax” and his great-grandfather, Stevan, was famous as one of the strongest men in Herzegovina.

Mark that one down in your survival book.
