- Horrible pictures of a & # 39; living mummy & # 39; appeared who was apparently attacked by a bear

The search for the identity of an emaciated man who was believed to have miraculously survived a month in a bear hole in Russia, took a new turn today.
It has now been claimed that the victim was actually in the hospital in Kazakhstan and had never been attacked.
The bearded & # 39; live mummy & # 39; who apparently survived a horrific ordeal after being ambushed by the bear, was first reported in the Moscow media before making international headlines.
A graphic video and photos showed the terrible condition of the & # 39; survivor & # 39; allegedly sustained a broken backbone by the bear who later locked him up to eat.
Horrible photos were taken of a Russian man, who only gave his name as Alexander, in a terrible state at the hospital after he claimed to live in a bear cave
It was claimed that he was trapped in a bear hole after the predator broke his backbone and rescued him for a future meal.
Today, the Moscow-based EADaily news agency, behind the story, offered a cash reward for anyone who can identify the man, known only as Alexander.
But every hospital in Tuva, the area where the attack allegedly happened, has now denied that the man had been a patient.
At the same time, controls by independent investigators point to the video clip of the man who is not from Russia, but from neighboring Kazakhstan.
A second language used by female voices in the images is not known as Tuvan but Kazakhs.
And tonight, a group looking for lost people in Kazakhstan claims the video shows a man recently hospitalized in the city of Aktobe.
A graphic video and photos showed the terrible condition of the & # 39; survivor & # 39; allegedly sustained a broken backbone by the bear who later kept him from eating later
It was claimed that the man was trapped in a bear hole after the predator broke his backbone and rescued him for a future meal
The distance between Kyzyl, the regional capital Tuva and Aktobe, is approximately 1600 km.
The group called zello.poisk investigated whether the man in the video called Alexander might be a missing man with the same name.
He wasn't, but they made it clear that he is from Aktobe and was not attacked by a bear.
In a posting they said: & We checked the hospitals (in Aktobe) and asked them to help us.
& # 39; Finally we discovered that this man (in the & # 39; beer den & # 39; case) comes from our city.
& # 39; He is being treated in one of the hospitals and is getting better and better. & # 39;
The group said about the man from the video: & # 39; He is sick.
& # 39; But the doctors said they would cure him.
& # 39; Of course, how he turned out to be in a state we will never know … & # 39;
A hospital source in Aktobe also indicated today that the bearded man in the video is a patient who is being treated.
However, there was no official statement to confirm this from the hospital tonight.
Nor was there any information about how the man in the video had come across the injuries on the video.
The story of the bear cave was covered by major media in Russia, including Izvestia, Vesti and Moskovsky Komsomolets.
In a new story about the case today, EADaily argued for new information about the identity of the man.
& # 39; The fact remains that a certain Alexander, named Alexander, is in the most difficult condition in one of the hospitals.
& # 39; EAD addresses all readers who can shed light on this event. & # 39;
