A Russian man is lucky to be alive after he was attacked by a brown bear and dragged to a cave where he was “preserved" to be eaten later, according to local reports.

A group of hunters found the man after their dogs refused to leave the area of the bear's den in a remote section of the Tyva Republic in south-central Russia.

The persistent barking prompted the men to check inside the den where they found what they believed was a mummified corpse.

The man told the group he was attacked by a brown bear that broke his spine before dragging him to the den to be eaten later. He remembered his name, Alexander, but not his age. He said he was in the den for a about a month.

Alexander was rushed to the hospital where he is being treated for multiple internal injuries, infections and severe dehydration.

He told hospital staff he drank his own urine to survive and he lay motionless playing dead. "The bear preserved me as food for later," he said.

A video filmed in the hospital shows Alexander opening his eyes and confirming his name. He is pale, emaciated and covered with lacerations and areas of rotting skin. Doctors say he can move his arms. They can't believe he survived such horrific injuries.

The story was first reported by major Russian newspaper Izvestia and news agency EADaily.

  • hottlanta

    Did anybody see 18 year old willow tell jada n her grandmother that she has seen a lot of things in her life that she wants a 3 way full blown serious relationship with a man n a woman at the same dayum time. This girl never talks about going to school or doing charity work but serious about this 3 way relationship. Then jada says anything to make u happy as if they r going shopping. I wish my grandhots would.??

  • Pamela

    lmao!

  • Ghetto Real Name

    People dragged my ass here about the Smith kids more than once over the years. IDGAF. I dont think they read well still to this day. Jaden was legit pissed over lemon ricotta pancakes in Canada last year. He is a vegan and obviously didnt read the menu or its my thought...couldnt read it, and didnt know ricotta was a type of cheese. Said they spiked his pancakes full of cheese and threw a fit to the point he was asked to leave. I was like this is what lack of education gets you. You cant even read a simple menu.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I love going to the cabins in Helen, GA, but they keep a bear up there. We had one on the deck one year eating out of the garbage can. Everybody was shook.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yeaaa...that was DiCaprio first Oscar..

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Right and Willow's azz can't count. Yet folks keep saying they're rich as if they don't need to know how to count their own damn money. I know they didn't finish school because they were complaining about the tutor that was traveling with them years ago. Is Jadan still running around looking like Punky Brewster?

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Seem suspicious to me

  • SpillyNillie

    And this comment sent me...

  • PhillyFacts

    We’re animals...I’m glad the man won??

  • GAPeach

    I literally hollered off this.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Girl yes he is. I know they didnt finish. I remma when they got dragged for not being able to read the cue cards on BET Awards one year. IDC how rich you are. At least a HS education. Shit even McDonald's requires that these days. How you gonna have less education than a McDonald's worker? Not cool or okay

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I blame Jada running around here sharing her hoe tales publicly. Now done put ideas in Willow's head. A fukkin shame if you ask me. Not a fan of their parenting style at ALL

  • Renee26

    I'm goin to hell for thinking he was probably better off dead ?

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Exactly. So much fake news out here. And that video of him with all that rotted flesh didn’t help.

  • Ni Ni

    ???

  • Madashelle

    Yes he did! That's his M.O. Grab/kidnap a man. Nuzzle and munch on him a little bit, then stick him in the cave. He likes his meat done, well-done, and raw. I'm just fvkging w/Jussie today. https://media3.giphy.com/media/hSp7lelxjwJ0Pw1ymt/giphy.gif

    I knew she would not last long. The cancer spread to her lungs plus she refused chemo I think and was difficult to treat. She probably made peace with the fact that she was not going to survive, hence refusing treatment.

  • Kimocha

    Oh My!!!.. He really did look like a mummy!... I didn't know that bears wait that damn long to eat something!... And how do somebody survive a whole month off of drinking pee??... I didn't even know that sh@t was possible!

    I guess I am not educated about animals, but I didn’t know bears ate meat. I though their diets were fish, vegetables, and fruit. If so, that bear needed something to sustain him during hibernation months.

    I’m lost for words other than Got Damn

  • Madashelle

    Yes..Bears are omnivores. They eat plants as well as meat. They still are top-dog in many places, but with the wolves now being moved back into many places that the bears had to themselves for many years, they now have competition.

  • Maxx

    You play too much alllllll day

  • Maxx
