The 42-year-old man, Igor Vorozhbitsyn, claims he was on his way to go fishing in northern Russia when he was mauled by a brown bear. That's when his cell phone rang. Naturally, the burly fisherman had his ring tone set to Justin Bieber's 2010 hit "Baby."

The bear was apparently startled and amazingly stopped the attack and ran away.

Igor was left with cuts and bruises and was able to call for help.
