Unbearable: Man fends off bear attack by playing Justin Bieber song
Wednesday, August 6, 2014, 7:26 PM - A Russian man was recently able to fend off a bear attack with a Justin Bieber song.
Forty-two year old Igor Vorozhbitsyn was recently fishing in Russia's Yakutia Republic when he was attacked by a bear.
During the ordeal Vorozhbitsyn's phone -- which has Bieber's "Baby" as the ringtone -- went off, causing the startled bear to run away.

While some might argue the pop song has the ability to repel animals, wildlife experts say the bears might not have anything against Justin Bieber, per se.
The volume of the ringtone is probably what stopped the attack.
One expert told Central European News that an unexpected noise, like a ringtone, can stop an angry bear in its tracks.
