Hunter Survives Tiger Attack in Khabarovsk

A hunter in the Khabarovsk region has survived a tiger attack, escaping with just some bruising and a broken collarbone.

The man had gone out to check hunting traps in the village of Medvezhye when he found himself face to face with a tiger that had been hunting a herd of wild boar, according to a statement released by the regional branch of the Interior Ministry on Wednesday.

He managed to make it back to the winter hut where his fellow hunters and relatives were located, and they contacted police to report it, the statement said.

"The man's relatives immediately took him to the regional hospital, where doctors determined that in addition to numerous bruises, he had a broken collarbone," the statement said.

Police are currently looking into the incident.
