Russian Fisherman Saved From Vicious Bear Attack by His Justin Bieber Ringtone

A fisherman in Russia was saved from death at the hands of a brown bear when his Justin Bieber ringtone scared the animal off, NME reports.

Igor Vorozhbitsyn was attacked by the bear while on a fishing trip in the northern part of Russia and suffered cuts and bruises to his face, neck and chest in the incident. However, things could have been far worse if it wasn't for his phone ringing as the bear attacked.

The sound of Justin Bieber's hit "Baby" coming from his handset was enough to send the animal scampering back into the woods and Vorozhbitsyn was rescued by passers by.

"I had parked my car and was walking towards the spot I'd marked out when there was a tremendous impact on my back and the bear was on top of me," Vorozhbitsyn told Central European News (via New York Post). "I couldn't believe my luck when the phone went off and he fled. I know that sort of ringtone isn't to everyone's taste, but my granddaughter loaded it onto my phone for a joke."

Justin Bieber himself was reportedly involved in an angry exchange with an aggressive counterpart when he clashed with "Lord of the Rings" actor Orlando Bloom in Ibiza last week.

    Conclusive evidence that Bieber's music is unbearable

    I thought the competition for the best Bieber-joke was going to be much longer but no, you sir have won it already!

    Oh that's just horrible. I really hope the poor bear is OK!

    The bear is now in psychiatric therapy; it was the first time he'd heard music in years, he was quoted saying "I thought the world had gone mad, thinking THAT counted as music! It was so bad I lost my appetite completely."

    There is a "in Soviet Russia..." joke in there, somewhere.

    in Soviet Russia у медведей есть нормальные музыкальные предпочтения.

    "I had parked my car and was walking towards the spot I'd marked out when there was a tremendous impact on my back and the bear was on top of me," Swap "bear" for "bloke" and it'll sound like a porn script.

    Is this how you see the world and it's events, by any chance? :p

    Actually, yes. I work at a library and whenever a cute girl drops by, I start to daydream about her asking me for a copy of the Kama Sutra or something. Yes, I should probably seek help.

    One day it will happen my friend. I do hope you will point her to the best positions too while you are helping her!

    The dude almost gets killed by a bear, Bieber's music scares it off and saves his life, and he still won't admit that he likes Bieber.

    Enough about Justin Bieber in this ****ing site. I'm ****ing sick and tired of seeing him everywhere, even in articles dissing him. I swear, y'all care more about him than Beliebers.

    Anyone with a Justin Bieber ringtone deserves to be attacked by a bear

    Yo, not cool, bear attacks bite. . . puns aside, it was probably the sudden unexplained noise that scared the bear. . . or the bear realized it was attacking a Russian, and attacking Russia never works out.

    I'm confused, isn't a bear attacking a Russian man just one Russian man attacking another Russian man?
