God’s mysterious ways revealed

Igor and his savior

Igor and his savior

Turns out there is a reason for Justin Bieber to be on this planet: he just saved a Russian named “Igor” (of course) from a bear mauling. But now that he’s served his purpose, perhaps he’ll do us the favor of shuffling off this mortal coil.

Even bears can’t stand Justin Bieber’s music.

A fisherman in Russia was being attacked by a brown bear and escaped death when his Justin Bieber ringtone went off and sent the beast fleeing into the forest.

Igor Vorozhbitsyn was heading to a local fishing spot in northern Russia’s Yakutia Republic when the Bieber-hating bear suddenly appeared and pounced on him, Central European News reports.

The 42-year-old was saved when Bieber’s popular hit song “Baby” started playing on his phone.

“I couldn’t believe my luck when the phone went off and he fled,” Vorozhbitsyn said.

“I know that sort of ringtone isn’t to everyone’s taste, but my granddaughter loaded it onto my phone for a joke.”

    If it saves the life of just one Russian fisherman…

    Btw, did anyone else notice this guy is a 42 year old grandfather? I thought they only did that in the Ozarks.

      Married at 18 or 20 yo, his kids also married at 18 or 20 too…seems eminently respectable and sensible if you are not going to piss away your youth in academia. And it may be the mauling, but I suspect he is not what you’d call intellectually oriented.

      My granny got married at 18 from a perfectly respectable bourgeois family. Well read and educated.

      It really only recently we’re waiting longer to get hitched.

        Sorry, Fred. I got confused. I thought we were living in 2014, not 1914. Thanks for clearing that up. Also, I’m really impressed with a 4- 6 year old who can reprogram a phone. I would have thought she’d have to be a mite older to manage that. What’s Russian for “mazel tov”?
