The man later managed to escape with just a few scrapes and bruises and was taken to hospital. He is now facing prosecution for Sabina was left distressed and nervous after the attack.

A zoo spokesman said Sabina is accustomed to people as she used to belong to a circus, but she never expected a human to attack her. Zoo spokesman Karczewska said she just sat in the water growling nervously until her carers came.

The poor bear must really be weary of humans, as this was not the first time that she had been attacked. As per reports, in 2015 a man had climbed into her enclosure and punched her in the head after she tried to bite him in a bid to protect herself. This time too the man escaped with life and just cuts, though he was fined £170.
