WARNING: GRAPHIC FOOTAGE Naiphum Promratee, 36, was apparently seen holding a bowl of rice above the huge bear before it suddenly snatched him into its enclosure
An enormous bear mauled a man within an ‘inch of his life’ after he allegedly teased with the beast by dangling food above its jaws.
Naiphum Promratee, 36, was reportedly seen holding a bowl of rice above the huge bear before it suddenly snatched him into its enclosure.
The animal knocked him unconscious as it dragged him back towards its cage – before the man’s screaming pals rushed in and managed to save him.
Naiphum had been with four friends when he decided to visit the temple in rural Phetchabun province, Thailand, this morning.
The monks keep around two dozen wild boars in a small enclosure and a bear in a cage which they care for and allow guests to feed.
