Speaks Out After Surviving Bear Attack

A woman is lucky to be alive after a bear attacked her before partially burying her to eat later on.

It is believed the bear likely thought it had killed Natalya Pasternak, 55, and wanted to save her for its next meal.

The mum-of-two was collecting birch sap in a forest near Tynda the Amur region with a friend when the attack took place. Her dog had started barking at the bear, but there was no time for Natalya to escape.

Her friend ran away to raise the alarm and returned with emergency services.

According to the Express, the first thing she said was: "Have you killed the bear?"​​

A picture taken from the scene showed Natalya covered in blood with claw marks to her body.

Doctors said she was in a "severe" condition, and her two adult children are with her at the hospital in Tynda.
