A man was on a morning bike ride in Alaska last week when a 400-pound brown bear loaded him, biting his lower leg and only backed up after the man kicked foot to the animal, according to an incident report from the Alaskan Wildlife Troopers.

The dismemberment occurred in Cantwell, about 30 miles from Denali National Park, in south-central Alaska.

He got off his bike and started yelling at the bear, but eventually fell to the ground and the animal bit his right leg, causing puncture wounds and a laceration.

The man, who has not been identified by authorities, told officers he believed he “kicked the bear” and fled.

The mutilation occurred near a town about 30 miles south of Mount Denali, the highest peak in North America.
