Man under fire for throwing a dog to save a woman from a bear

A man who saw a polar bear attacking a woman at a coastal facility in the Russian Arctic approached a dog close to the scene of the attack, picked the live dog and threw it at the polar bear in a bid to distract the animal from attacking a woman.

The scene was recorded and shared online which caused an outrage and fuelled demands for retribution, as the bear attacked the yelping dog.

A screaming woman off camera appears to encourage the man to throw the dog to what seems to be certain death.

There were calls for an investigation by animal rights groups and for the man to be severely punished.

The woman fortunately escaped, they think the dog may have escaped as well, nobody was really sure.
