“The bear had bitten his face and ripped the muscles off his leg.” Homo (non)sapiens meets bear in Transylvania (VI.)

Stories with bears and about bears – taken from qualitative interviews with locals in southern Transylvania in summer-autumn 2013.
(In this case an interview with a 29 year old Romanian shepard from the village of Vidacut/Hidegkut, Mures county)

………………………………………………

“There was one [a bear] who’d caused big damage. He had severely injured a boy, bitten his face and the leg and ripped off the muscles of his leg, down to the knee and that bear has been “taken” (hunted) later. Some years ago the same thing happened to another guy in the neighboring village of Sacel: There was a dangerous bear and he had bitten his back and flesh from is hips. The man had to stay for six months in the hospital in Miercurea Ciuc.”
