Herzegovina Man Kills Bear With Bare Hands

A 48-year-old man from Bosnia and Herzegovina has made the headlines in the region after he killed a bear with his bare hands.
Blazo Grkovic, who is from the town of Gacko in southeastern Bosnia and Herzegovina, was out herding his sheep when he was attacked by the bear.

The brave farmer wrestled with the bear and after a struggle managed to strangle the big beast. Grkovic suffered cuts and bruises after his altercation with the grizzly bear and wife Mira was just pleased he survived the attack.

“Everything will be ok, it is just important that Blaz is still alive, the wounds will heal, said wife Mira to Nezavisne novine, adding that she knew her husband was brave, but not that he was stronger than a bear.
