A 10-year-old schoolboy in Russia was mauled to death after two wild bears dragged him inside their cage at a holiday resort in the country.
The boy named Nikita was reportedly showing off his bravery in front of two girls by allegedly provoking the beasts and slapping their paws.
While trying to strike a pose for a picture in front of the caged animals, he got too close and was dragged inside the cage where he was killed.
The girls (who are about the same age as the victim) watched in horror as the bears clawed and bit their friend, hurling him around their cage in the Russian Black Sea Resort best known for hosting the Winter Olympics in 2014.
Nikita, who was on a holiday with his family, was thrown around “like a ball” by the enraged creatures and died subsequently.
The girls had screamed for help and called their parents but by the time help arrived, it was too late to save the boy. The two predators were shot dead by the staff of the resort so that Nikita’s motionless body could be retrieved.
An ambulance crew confirmed his death shortly after 6 pm on Tuesday, August 4, 2020.
