(Sozcu Newspaper, 26 December 2012)
A bear entered a coffee house on Sunday night
in the village of Hanusagi, which is located 25
kilometers from Ovacik district, Tunceli province.
Five of the six people inside the coffee house were
able to escape but Muzaffer Gezici (41) couldn't
and was attacked by the bear.

The villagers came to the coffee house armed
with rocks and bats and chased the bear away.
Gezici, who tussled with the bear for ten minutes,
was injured. And although a couple of days have
passed the villagers are still scared the bear will
return. No one is leaving their house because this
year, for some reason, the bears are not hibernating
and are coming to the village looking for food.
Can't bear a return engagement.
