Boy mauled after skiing into mother bear's lair

275x250.jpgA 12-year-old boy is lucky to be alive after accidentally skiing into a bear's lair and being mauled by a mother protecting her cubs.

Olle Frisk had been enjoying the skiing in Funäsdalen, northern Sweden, when he took a wrong turn and found himself heading straight towards the lair.

The next thing the unfortunate lad remembers is seeing the irate mother bear jumping onto him and viciously attacking him in to bid to protect her three cubs.

In fact, she only stopped her assault when he 'played dead' and his pals were able to scare her off while Olle escaped and made his way down the slope.

While Olle was bitten on both legs, clawed on his back and says he thought he was going to die, he's now said to be recovering in a suitably bear-free hospital.
Wildlife authorises are now waiting to see if the mother bear returns to her cubs, if not they will be take to an animal sanctuary to be cared for.
