A man in New Brunswick, Canada thought he was in major trouble when he was attacked by a black bear while walking in the woods.
Instead of panicking, Gilles Cyr thought he’d try to inflict pain on the bear while the bear was on top of him…so he grabbed the bear’s tongue. That move saved his life.

The bear was taken off guard and Cyr managed to wriggle out from under the animal. Cyr escaped and hid behind a tree until the bear wandered off into the woods. Cyr was treated for superficial wounds at a nearby hospital.
