The 600 Kg bear suffered facial injuries in the attack and said after “I’m heading for the Himalayan hills, I don’t know why maize and corn lured me down here when I have insects, termites, nuts, pears and apricots  at 10,000 feet.  I have to ron flash admit I was wholly unaware of a land based predator more fearsome than I in the lowlands.
