A 62-year-old man was killed after being attacked by a bear he was trying to kill.

The bear killed the hunter before succumbing to his own fatal injuries, with the bodies of the two later found not far apart.

The unnamed hunter is believed to have shot and wounded the predator from a platform in a tree in Tulun district of Irkutsk region, Russia.

It is suggested that the man believed he had killed the bear and descended from the tree, only to be attacked and killed by the beast in his final act.

“As a 62-year-old man climbed down, the mortally wounded bear attacked and killed him,” Interfax reported.

“The carcass of the animal was found 50 meters from where the man died.”

“The mortally wounded predator managed to inflict an injury from which the hunter died,” said the regional office of the Russian Interior Ministry.

The hunter had been reported missing.

The macabre scene was discovered after a search party was organized in the Siberian region.
