A youth died after being attacked by a bear in Odisha. The boy had gone to an open area that was deserted, for defecation, when the tragedy occurred. The bear caught him and threw him around the place. He tried to get himself free, but failed. It gripped him tightly and hurled him around on the ground. His pet and several other people around tried to help the boy in vain. A man hurled sticks and stones at the bear which had no effect. The badly injured youth was admitted to the hospital where he died later.
