Romanian shepherd who was attacked by a bear in the mountains was saved by his pet Pekinese dog.
The man was checking sheep near Magurii Casinului, in Vrancea county, when the bear came out from bushes and started chasing him.
Petre Preda thought he was doomed when he slipped and broke his leg - but his little dog had other ideas.
It began harassing the bear, distracting it from the shepherd, and leading it off into nearby woods.
Mr Preda told National newspaper: "The giant bear came out of the blue and swooped upon me ready to tear me into pieces.
"I ran as fast as I could but I stumbled and broke my right leg. I thought only God could help me and started my last prayer.
"Then I heard my little Pekinese, I'd completely forgot about it. The little one attacked the bear distracting it from me. After an hour the dog returned from the woods safe."
The shepherd said his Pekinese, which he named Bear, was a gift from his wife who gave it to him to take care of him in the mountains.
