A female animal keeper known for kissing brown bears lost her leg after one of them had attacked her, according to reports in Russia.
The predator clawed Vera Blishch with his paw and dropped his teeth in a wild attack before the zoo in Ussuriysk opened today.
The experienced animal caretaker was attacked while training a new colleague and had to have her lower leg amputated, it is claimed.
Blishch was previously seen on video and kisses a bear on the tongue and offers it a treat, and explains that & # 39; it is very dangerous to do this & # 39 ;.

& # 39; A bear is the most dangerous predator on earth & # 39 ;, she said when the municipal zoo in the Far East of Russia opened in 2015.
& # 39; Bears are trained almost nowhere except in Russia. Even by just kissing the bear, I can lose my head in a fraction of a second.
& # 39; To work with a bear, you must have a special feeling. We say it is a feeling sent by God. You must feel a bear. & # 39;
The goalkeeper is known for a campaign to save animals affected by serious flooding in the Russian Far East in 2015.
She stood neck-deep in flood water to save caged animals.

It was not immediately clear whether the predator that attacked her was one she had saved four years ago.
& # 39; A zoo employee instructed a new staff member and approached the cage & # 39 ;, said paramedic Alexander Fedeykin.
& # 39; The bear hit her with his paw, which led to an open fracture and her skin torn off. & # 39;
Later, according to the Siberian Times, doctors were forced to amputate her leg.
Ussuriysk is located in the extreme southeast of Russia, less than 40 miles from the border with China and the Pacific Ocean.
