The retired railway construction worker had previously called his wife, who was staying in the other house of the couple in a nearby town.

He said to her: & # 39; I'm going to pick mushrooms. If I stop calling you at 10 o'clock, it means I was eaten by a bear. & # 39;

Sergey Ryabov, chief of the local village council, said: “It was a joke, but he was angry with his words.

& # 39; The bear has eaten the man. & # 39;

Before his death, the retired construction worker had called his wife, who was staying in the other house of the couple in a nearby town

A video showed the remains of the beast in scrubland.

Village driver Ryabov added: & # 39; Alexander loved picking mushrooms.

& # 39; He had a favorite place a short distance from the village. & # 39;

In recent weeks there has been an influx of bears in the vicinity of towns and villages in Siberia and the Far East of Russia.

This is caused by furious forest fires through the vast region and a lack of natural food from bears in some districts.

The police are investigating the man's death while residents report that several bears are snooping around the village.

Signs have been placed calling on people not to go to the forest or pick mushrooms.
