A polar bear pounces on a woman in Russia -- throwing her around with ease before she amazingly escapes unscathed -- and the encounter is captured on camera.
There are few details about the video clip, which was uploaded to YouTube without additional information. The woman and exact location of the attack have not been identified.
When the video opens, the woman is hiding behind a low wall, possibly already trying to shield herself from the polar bear. A second later, the polar bear appears and tosses her around as onlookers scream and beep car horns.
An object is thrown at the polar bear, and the animal retreats.
Miraculously, the woman then stands up and walks away, shaken but without any visible injuries.
