A worker at a beer factory suffered serious injuries after being bitten by a bear that was being kept in a cage, police in Russia said.

Murmansk Police said that they are looking into filing charges against the company, whose bear has attacked the employee.

According to the police investigation, the bear is being kept in a cage at the Kolsky beer factory. The bear bit one of the factory workers after deliberately putting his hand into the cage in order to provoke the animal.

The police is still trying to legally confiscate the animal.

In August, a man had the scare of his life when he came face to face with a big black bear in his kitchen. David Edwards, 43, of Ketchum, Idaho, said that he woke up at 3:00 a.m. to the noise of his barking dog.

After the dog continued barking aggressively, Edwards went to see what was wrong. He headed to the kitchen, where his Irish setter-Lab mix, named Stanley, was barking.

Along the way, he passed the living room where his wife, Sara, was sleeping on a couch.

“I looked into the kitchen and saw this big, furry animal,” Edwards said. The bear was standing next to the stove, licking the leftovers from a pot of Chinese stir fry, which the family had that evening for dinner.

He woke up his wife and led her out of the house. Eventually, the bear left on its own.
