Russian Man, 80, Fights Bear & Survives!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Russian shepherd Yusuf Alchagirov, 80, fought with a bear and was tossed over a cliff, but somehow only ended up with bruises, bite wounds and four broken ribs.

Alchagirov was in a raspberry field in the southern Russian region of Kabardino-Balkaria last week when a bear approached him."

At 80-freaking-years-old this Russian dude should spend most of his time in bed counting sheep, not working as a shepherd.

If a bear approached me I would cry like a schoolgirl and wet my drawers; I would be paralyzed with fear and unable to run.
