Justin Bieber has saved a man from a bear attack!
The Baby singer's music is known to bring young girls flocking and now it's also a proven bear repellent.
Igor Vorozhbitsyn, 42, was fishing in northern Russia's Yakutia Republic when a bear attacked him. The man thought he was done for, but when the bear clawed at him, his mobile phone went off. The ringtone, Justin Bieber's chart-toppping song Baby, caused the bear to run away, according to the Austrian Times.
Vorozhbitsyn, now recovering from the incident, explained: "I had parked my car and was walking towards the spot I'd marked out when there was a tremendous impact on my back and the bear was on top of me."
"I couldn't believe my luck when the phone went off and he fled," Vorozhbitsyn said.
"I know that sort of ringtone isn't to everyone's taste, but my granddaughter loaded it onto my phone for a joke."
Vorozhbitsyn suffered cuts and bruises around his face and chest during the attack and is recovering at home. Vorozhbitsyn posted a picture of himself after the grisly attack — showing off his swollen eye, gauze wrapped around his head and bandages on his hand, arm and abdomen.
However, the quality of the music isn't what ceased the attack but rather, the music's volume, the NY Post reported.
Wildlife experts believe the ringtone, must have startled the bear into halting its attack.
"Sometimes a sharp shock can stop an angry bear in its tracks and that ringtone would be a very unexpected sound for a bear," an expert told Central European News.
