News to know

An 80-year-old Russia man lived to tell the tale of a bear attack and a fall down a cliff. The man, shepherd Yusuf Alchagirov, found himself face to face with a bear last week. Alchagirov headbutted and kicked the bear to get it to leave, and after a scuffle in which the man suffered bite wounds, the bear swatted him down - and off a cliff. The man had bruises and four broken ribs in addition to the bites, but he survived.
