A man near Grand Falls, New Brunswick, Canada, says he's lucky to be alive after a bear attacked him in the woods. Gilles Cyr said he was walking through his property when suddenly something black came flying out of the woods at him. Cyr describes the attack: "When I opened up my eyes it was on top of me. ... His mouth was wide open right in front of my face so the last thing I remember I had his tongue in my hand and I didn’t want to let go because he was trying to fight me off. So he was hitting me with his claws, so I says, 'If you're going to hurt me, I’m going to hurt you too.' So he was biting his tongue at the same time." He said he managed to escape behind a tree but not before the bear clawed his belly and bit his knee. The bear followed him but then appeared to lose interest and walked away.
