Japanese fisherman, 63, ‘fights off bear with karate’

The 63-year-old was fishing in a mountain creek when the 6ft 3in creature set upon him in what he said was an unprovoked attack.

In scenes seemingly reminiscent of Leonardo Di Caprio’s epic tussle with an angry bear in the Oscar-winning film The Revenant – Atsushi Aoki was bitten and scratched repeatedly, including on his head.

“The bear was so strong, and it knocked me down,” Mr Aoki told Tokyo Broadcasting System.

“It turned me over and bit me right here,” he added, pointing to his bandaged leg.
