A man in Russia is on the mend following a bear attack that could have been much worse if it wasn't for Justin Bieber

According to local media, Igor the fisherman was heading to a fishing spot in northern Russia when the bear pounced on him out of nowhere.  Luckily, he got a call from someone at almost the same moment and his phone started blaring the ringtone his granddaughter had installed for him - Bieber's mega-hit "Baby." 

The bear was apparently spooked by the song and took off, giving Igor a chance to call for help.  He suffered cuts and bruises to his face, hands and chest, but is expected to make a full recovery.
